Split Earlobe Correction

Split earlobes can often look unattractive, and is the main reason why people seek a correction procedure. Usually the result of trauma to the bottom part of the ear, this condition can range from a small tear to a complete split, or much larger hole than was previously made. Split earlobe correction is a fairly straightforward procedure that Chester Cosmetic Surgery treats as a day case. A local anaesthetic is often the most suitable form of anaesthesia, and allows for patients to be discharged on the same day as the surgery.

Miss Breahna repairs the visible split by stitching the skin back together so new skin can grow and seal the opening. This may result in a small scar forming at the site of correction, however, this will fade over time and blend in with the surrounding skin. The procedure is tailored to the individual’s concern, addressing the needs of one or both of the ears independently.

While the ears are healing they will need to be kept clean and dry for up to 1 week. There may be some minor post-surgery discomfort which can be eased with oral pain relief (such as paracetamol). It may be advisable to protect the ears while sleeping until the stitches have been removed, which usually happens 7 – 10 days after surgery.

Frequently asked questions

Your split earlobes will be thoroughly examined at a pre-treatment consultation before we recommend you for surgery. Split earlobes correction can restore the appearance of the ears when trauma has caused an enlarged hole, tear or complete split of the earlobe.

Split earlobe correction is a safe procedure that restores the natural appearance of the ears. Miss Breahna will use the least invasive approach possible, and modern techniques means scarring is minimised and healing can be rapid.

Stitching the skin back together will mean piercing the skin. This can be uncomfortable (more uncomfortable than the initial ear-piercing) which is why we’ll use a local anaesthetic. This will completely numb the treatment area throughout the procedure, however some sensitivity may be felt when it wears off. Oral pain relief can be taken after the procedure if necessary.

The ears may become swollen, red and slightly bruised following split earlobe correction, which may only last for a couple of weeks. It is advisable to avoid wearing heavy earrings after repair of a split earlobe, as this may cause the scar to stretch and the earlobe may split again.

The final results will usually be visible once any swelling and bruising has disappeared and scarring starts to fade. Although swelling may only last for a couple of weeks, scarring can take a little longer to become less visible – maybe a few months.
