Face and neck Earlobe Repair

Ear lobe reconstruction can correct stretched or ‘gauged’ earlobes. Performed under magnified vision, earlobe repair aims to restore a damaged, elongated, or torn earlobe back to its aesthetic appearance. Here at Contour Clinics, we see an increasing number of people seeking to reverse their torn, gauged or stretched earlobes. These earlobe abnormalities are often as a result of accidents, stretching, injury, or wearing heavy earrings for prolonged periods.

Surgical reconstruction offers a convenient option, performed under local anaesthetic in under 45 minutes. Scarring is usually minimal, and can be treated with our specialist laser scar removal. Re-piercing may be possible 3-6 months post repair.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is entailed in an earlobe reconstruction?

After a detailed consent process, our cosmetic physician will administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area. Skin around the stretched lobe will be surgically revised under magnified vision, reshaping the ear back to its original contour. The specific technique used depends on the extent and complexity of your earlobe abnormality. Once scar and excess tissue is removed, the earlobe is sutured in place with ultra-fine stitches. A dressing is applied, and you follow up with our cosmetic physician in a week.

How long does earlobe repair take?

Ear lobe reconstruction takes 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the damage to each earlobe.

Where is the earlobe repair performed?

Earlobe repairs is performed in our on-site surgical suite at Contour Clinics Five Dock.
