Earlobe Repair at Image Surgical Arts
Earlobe repair is a surgical procedure designed to correct earlobes that have become stretched, or to close a hole in the earlobe. The procedure is commonly done for those who have stretched the earlobe with various piercings or in those with a long history of wearing heavy earrings. Earlobe repair is a highly-individualized procedure that is tailored to a look that you find aesthetically pleasing.
If you are bothered by the size or shape of your earlobes, you may be a good candidate for earlobe repair. Earlobe repair is safe and effective. Repairing the earlobe can reshape awkward-looking or overly-stretched earlobes and improve overall self-confidence.

Then, Dr. Harris will work meticulously to resize and reshape the skin and cartilage of the earlobe giving you the best possible outcome with very little downtime. Dr. Brady Harris is a highly-skilled surgeon with years of experience in a wide variety of facial cosmetic surgeries. Your procedure can be done in as little as 15-minutes per ear.

Earlobe Repair: Recovery & Results
Earlobe repair is generally very well tolerated. Most patients report mild discomfort for 1-2 days as they recover. Side effects may include slight swelling, bruising, or tenderness. Pain medication is usually not necessary.
Results from earlobe repair are immediate. Some post-surgical swelling may mask the true outcome of the procedure. Swelling should subside over the course of a week. Earlobe repair is considered a lifetime procedure.
