A split earlobe can occur for a number of different reasons. Sometimes it can be caused by wearing heavy earrings, or you might face an accident, such as the tearing off, of an earring which causes the earlobe to split. If you’re currently dealing with a split earlobe, then you may be happy to find out that it’s possible to repair a split earlobe with a procedure known as a lobuloplasty.
How does split earlobe repair procedure work?
A split earlobe repair works by cleaning up any excess issue around the split. After this, fine dissolvable stitches are used to carefully close the split. Depending on how long ago the split happened, it’s possible to see a full recovery within four to six weeks. If the earlobe has been stretched, then the ear may look less natural than it did before.
The process is quick and painless, but it’s recommended to not wear any earrings while your earlobes are healing. Doing so could cause further damage, such as tearing the stitches. You’ll be asked to attend a follow-up meeting for a further examination, after which your surgeon will decide if there needs to be another appointment in the future.
