Book Appointment


Ear lobe repair surgery is a procedure to fix lobes that have been torn or stretched. Usually, this happens due to earrings being worn for an extended period of time. Some people may have genetic factors that make their ear lobes weak and prone to damage. During the surgery, Dr. Hitesh at Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre in Pune reconstructs the ear lobe, restoring its natural shape and appearance.

Who Can Benefit from Ear Lobe Repair?

Ear lobe repair surgery is designed for those who have split ear lobes due to stretching or tearing from large earrings. The surgery can be done on both adults and children to restore the normal look and shape of the ear lobe.

How Does the Evaluation Process Work for Ear Lobe Repair?

Before starting the ear lobe repair surgery, Dr. Hitesh will evaluate the patient to determine the most suitable procedure for best results. This evaluation process also depends on the current state of the patient’s ear lobe and the discountinuity in between the torn edges.

What Are the Different Techniques for Ear Lobe Repair?

The two techniques used by Dr. Hitesh for repairing ear lobes are suturing and medical bonding. Both these techniques are performed under local anesthesia to ensure a patient’s comfort during the process. In suturing, the torn edges are stitched back together while medical bonding involves using a medical adhesive for connecting the torn edges.

How Is Ear Lobe Repair Surgery Performed?

The procedure for ear lobe repair involves stitching or bonding the torn ends of the ear lobe to attain normal and cosmetic appearance. In suturing, Dr. Hitesh will place dissolving stitches for reconnecting the ear lobe tissue once the sutures are placed. In medical bonding, the doctor uses medical adhesive to attach the torn edges and coat the area with antibiotic ointment before covering with a bandage.

What Is the Recovery Process After Ear Lobe Repair?

The patient may experience minor pain, redness, swelling and discomfort in the treatment area post-surgery. Taking prescribed medications and following doctor’s advice can help limit discomfort. Also, a bandage is placed in order to protect the stitches from infection and it should be kept clean and dry. The bandage should be removed as directed by a physician.

Are There Non-Surgical Options for Ear Lobe Repair?

Non-surgical treatments are only viable in mild cases like when the ear lobe does not have any reduced width or long-lasting damage. In such cases, a physician might prescribe steroid injections in combination with medication to close the damaged areas.
