An earlobe repair is a procedure in which a lobe that is torn or stretched is repaired. Your provider will cut away the skin lining the tear, remove excess tissue if necessary and suture the lobe back together. Once healed, the provider can re-pierce the ear.
This is considered cosmetic in nature and will not be covered by insurance.
There may be mild discomfort to the earlobe immediately following the procedure. You will need to apply an ointment for one week post-procedure help with healing and have sutures removed 7-10 days after.
