Everything You Need to Know about Earlobe Repair & Reconstruction

On the blog today we’re going to walk you through you what happens during an earlobe repair procedure.

Traditionally, repairing the earlobe would be done with a scalpel, which would mean that the area would be prone to more bleeding, reducing the precision and efficiency of the procedure and increasing recovery time. At Snowberry Lane Clinic we use Radiosurgery, which uses a specially designed handpiece containing a very thin wire. Radio waves are passed along the wire which seals the blood vessels while the cutting is occurring, reducing bleeding and making for a cleaner more efficient and precise procedure.

Here’s a video so you can see it for yourself:

As well as the procedure itself being more efficient, another benefit of Radiosurgery for earlobe repair is the reduced downtime. Following the treatment clients can return to their daily routine the following day. This would only be affected by the job of the client, as there may be some discomfort in the area while it heals, a job where ear defenders or any other apparatus that puts pressure on the treated area would require longer recovery time.

What can I do to fix an overstretched or split earlobe?

Ear lobe expanders have become an increasingly popular form of a body modification over the years, and while they can definitely be a great form of self-expression, sometimes people want to reverse the process. It’s also possible for earlobes to become damaged and torn accidentally and this is something that we can help with too.

On the blog today we’re going to show you what exactly happens in an earlobe repair procedure and how we at Snowberry Lane Clinic can help. Our earlobe repair surgery for both split and stretched earlobes is a minor Radio Surgery procedure, where the excess tissue is removed, and the two splits are carefully stitched back together using very fine dissolvable stitches. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and takes between 20 – 30 minutes per ear, meaning that you will be able to walk out of the clinic and resume normal activities on the same day. Please note that stretched ear lobes can take a little longer depending on the size and complexity of the hole to be repaired.

On average ear lobe repairs will need 6 months to heal, and there may be some small scarring on your ear, that will fade in appearance over time. For more information click here or give us a call on 01225 700072.
