Repair of torn or stretched earlobes

Surgical repair of torn or stretched earlobes is a reconstructive procedure that can be used to correct split, ripped, torn, drooping, stretched, or unusually large earlobes.

These injuries are often caused by large or heavy earrings. Some people have stretched their earlobes intentionally, through a method called gauging and later decide they wish to return to a more natural earlobe contour.
Clayton Dermatology Group can restore earlobes to a more natural appearance through earlobe repair surgery. This simple procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and it is done in our office using local numbing medicine.
