Earlobe Repair


Earlobes that have been damaged due to injury, illness, or over-piercing can make people feel self-conscious, and could even affect the hearing. Earlobe repair surgery can correct this problem so that patients in Dayton, Centerville, and the surrounding cities in Ohio can feel good about themselves again.


Earlobe repair surgery is performed to correct deformities, reposition the earlobe, or eliminate differences in size between the two lobes. Gauges may also leave holes in the ear that do not close up once those devices are removed. Wearing gauges or heavy earrings may also stretch the earlobe over time, resulting in a lopsided appearance.

Those with an unusual size or shape of earlobe often go to great lengths to choose hairstyles that cover their ears. Some will even feel as though they must constantly wear hats or headbands to hide their earlobes. After undergoing earlobe repair surgery, these individuals are thrilled to get their life back again. They are excited to know that they can wear any type of hairstyle they choose and rejoice in the fact that hats are not always needed.

If you are healthy enough to withstand local anesthesia, you can be a good candidate for earlobe repair surgery.

Avoid smoking for up to two weeks ahead of your appointment. Aside from that, no other special preparations are needed.

After removing any ear jewelry, a staff member will cleanse your earlobe with a cotton ball and antiseptic solution. You will lie comfortably on a table, and then a doctor will administer local anesthesia. Once you are numb, you may read, watch television, or take a nap while the surgeon performs reconstruction.

That depends on the extent of your surgery, but can generally be between one and three hours.

Your ears may be sensitive for a few days, so you may need to place cotton balls into your ear canals to protect them from the wind. Ear piercing repair will also prevent you from wearing earrings, even the clip-on kind, for between four and six weeks after surgery.

This will depend upon the nature of your surgery. Whenever possible, our surgeons will disguise scars inside the natural folds of your earlobe, ensuring they are as inconspicuous as possible.

You will notice the full results once your earlobes have healed, which may take between one and three weeks.

Earlobe repair surgery provides permanent results. Even so, future damage could occur if you once again receive gauges or are involved in an accident that results in trauma to the ears.

After having your earlobes repaired, you may be ready to show off your face and could, therefore, desire a chemical peel or wish to undergo acne treatment.

Because you may have different needs than any other patient, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.
