Piercing an earlobe places it at risk of tearing. The amount of stretching of the earlobe opening depends on the size, style and weight of the earrings you wear. The larger, dangle style earrings can easily catch on clothing or be grasped by a child resulting in a partially or completely torn earlobe. Dr. Caglia can repair a torn or split earlobe in our office using a local anesthetic. Repairing torn and split ear lobes is a minor surgical procedure. Most torn ear lobes can be repaired by simply taking out the edges of the tear and repositioning the new edges evenly, suturing and allowing them to heal in place.  

Earlobe rejuvenation is available for those patients that have thin or aged earlobes. Injectable dermal filler injections make thin earlobes thicker and more resistant to tears in the future as well as giving a more youthful appearance.

These procedures are only a phone call away and available to patients of Dallas, Plano, Frisco, Allen and McKinney.

Earlobe repair, earlobe rejuvenation, torn earlobe, before and after - Dallas, Allen, Plano McKinney 

How long is recovery?

A little antibiotic ointment is applied and sutures are removed in 7-10 days after your earlobe repair procedure.

How soon can I wear earrings after surgery?

Wait about 6-8 weeks or until your scar is soft before you get your lobe re-pierced.
