Ear Lobe Repair

Earlobes that have been damaged (stretched or torn) by piercing, wearing heavy earrings, or through a minor accident, can normally be repaired quickly in an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. Dr. Diehl performs ear lobe repairs, including gauged earlobes, in the Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill and surrounding area.

The Procedure

We can help to “refresh” most earlobes in approximately 30 minutes by suturing tears or elongated holes. Local anesthesia is all that is needed for this routine procedure. Gauged earlobes can frequently also be repaired, but it is a more complex procedure.

The Recovery

You can expect mild discomfort for one-two days. There is no wound care other than keeping the area clean.  With normal healing, you can safely pierce the ear after three months.
