Split Earlobe Repair

Most often, torn earlobes occur due to either too-heavy jewelry worn in the earlobe or through accidental tearing caused by an incident. One minute you may be playing with your children and the next, your earring gets ripped out right through the earlobe tissue. To repair a torn earlobe, a local anesthesia is injected and the edges are “freshened” by removing a very tiny sliver of skin. The new edges are then sewn together, and sutures are removed 1 week later. The ear can be repierced either a little bit to the outside or inside of the suture line 6 weeks later
