Ear lobe repair is the process of repairing stretched, split, or torn ear lobes.
If you are tired of stretched, torn, or disfigured ears, earlobe repair is for you. These tears are often very visible and may be hard to cover with your hair. Earlobe repair can refresh and suture together the edges of your damaged or torn earlobe.
Surgery is performed under local anesthesia in our comfortable procedure rooms. The procedure takes only 15 to 30 minutes. Postoperative pain is minimal and easily controlled with pain medications. Patients normally return to work the next day, and sutures are removed in 7 to 10 days.
Reconstruction of split earlobes is considered cosmetic and is not covered by insurance. The cost is usually around $450 an earlobe or $800 for both earlobes depending on the size and severity of the tear.
If you would like to have your earlobes repaired or you would like a consultation, call 520-838-0777 to schedule an appointment at DysonDermatology.
