What is it?

This is a simple surgical procedure to repair or improve the appearance of one or both earlobes, which may have changed due to age, become torn due to large earrings or suffered injury. 

How is it performed?

Earlobe surgery or torn earlobe repair is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which does not require hospitalisation and is carried out with local anaesthetic. It consists of making an scalpel incision in the damaged area. Stitches are then used to close it. These are normally removed 2 weeks after surgery. The size of the earlobe may also be reduced, and the scar is practically imperceptible. 


  • The results are definitive and immediate. 
  • It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. 
  • The scar is practically unnoticeable.
  • The client can return to their normal routine almost immediately.

Areas of application


Recommendations and care

  • Earlobes should be covered with sterile dressings to avoid infection. 
  • They should be kept dry for as long as indicated by the specialist. 
  • Physical exertion should be avoided for 48 hours.


How long should I wait before piercing my earlobes again?

The results are definitive after one month. Ears can be pierced again a month and a half after surgery.

Will the scar be visible?

No. Initially (as with all scars) it will have a pink tone, but will soon become unnoticeable.
