Earlobe repair surgery is performed for a variety of reasons. Typically, patients undergo an earlobe repair the damage of gauged ear lobes (plugs) or from wearing heavy or long earrings. After time, some patients may see a tear in their earlobe from wearing heavy jewlery and eventually it may rip through the entire ear lobe (especially as the skin thins out with age). If a piercing is close to the very bottom of the earlobe, that placement can cause earrings to rip through the earlobe even quicker. At ReGenesis Plastic Surgery & Skin Care Center we are able to repair long, sagging holes left from large gauges or repair torn earring holes, creating a natural-looking earlobe.
