Torn Earlobe Repair
Ear lobes can become stretched or torn from heavy earrings or from trauma such as catching an earring with a hairbrush, children pulling them by catching sweaters while pulling over the head, bath towels, phone cords, etc. Earlobe repair is easily done and is performed in the office with a simple 15 minute procedure with local anesthesia.
Some patients do not want to go without earrings and the ear lobe can be repaired and an earring placed at the same time in most cases.
