Posted By Center for Dermatology

When might earlobe repair be needed?
Earlobes can be repaired after an earring has left a large hole, has a tear from the hole to the edge of the ear. These patients may be unable to wear earrings. Patients who have a recent tear may also be at a risk for infection. Working with a surgical dermatologist to address this issue is the first step to repair.
Treatment for split earlobes
The best way to address a split earlobe is to visit a dermatologist to discuss surgical treatments. Many times, the skin needs to be stitched back together and allowed to heal before further use of earrings can occur. It is important for patients to understand the entire process from start to finish, which is why a consultation appointment and initial evaluation are always encouraged. Patients can ask questions about the treatment, find out what they can expect, and discuss after-care instructions to ensure the best healing. Proper care following surgery can reduce the risk of infection and help patients enjoy a scar-free repair for a better appearance.
