Embrace a New Sense of Confidence

What Is Earlobe Repair Surgery?

Earlobe repair surgery can help to reshape an earlobe that is torn or severely stretched.

Your earlobe is made up of delicate skin and tissue with no cartilage support. It is extremely sensitive and can get torn or stretched in a variety of ways: through injury, frequently wearing large or heavy earrings or intentional stretching using plugs.

The earlobe repair procedure can be truly transformative — taking something that makes you self-conscious and turning it into something that makes you feel good. By skillfully reshaping and repairing stretched or torn earlobes, our plastic surgeons can unveil a new sense of confidence everywhere you go.
