Restore Ear Lobes


Ear lobe repair is a cosmetic technique that can correct damage to the ears that resulted from tearing, stretching, trauma or gauges. It is an effective solution for patients who are looking to restore their ability to wear earrings, or for those who simply want to restore normalcy to the appearance.

Ear lobe repair is a simple in-office treatment for correcting damage to the ear lobes. The treatment can produce permanent results.

The Procedure



What Ear Lobe Repair Treats

  • Stretching               
  • Tearing
  • Piercings                 
  • Ear gauges

Procedure time

Up to 60 minutes

Recovery time 

Minimal downtime required. You can return to your normal activities within a day of treatment, although the treatment area itself will take several weeks to heal. During this time, you will need to take special care to avoid any activities that can damage or put stress on the treatment area.


The results will be visible immediately, and they will become more noticeable as the treatment area heals. 

Can You Fix a Ripped Ear Lobe?

Yes! Ear lobe repair is the best solution for fixing a ripped ear lobe, and it is one of the only options for doing so. In fact, following ear lobe repair, you can even resume wearing earrings approximately four to six weeks after.

When Can I Wear Earrings Again After Ear Lobe Repair?

After your ears have completely healed from ear lobe repair, you will be able to get your ears re-pierced and wear earrings once again. It is very important to avoid earrings of any kind until the ears are completely healed, as prematurely wearing earrings can undo the results of your treatment.

How Long Does Ear Lobe Repair Take to Heal?

The healing process for ear lobe repair is simple enough that you will be able to resume most normal activities immediately after treatment. However, it can take up to three months for the ears to heal completely from treatment. It is at this point you can expect any scarring to fade.
