Earlobe Surgery

 

Three types of earlobe procedures commonly performed are for

  • TORN EARLOBES – usually a piercing that has been caught and ‘pulled out’. This is often related to an ACC claim and if so ACC will often cover the associated costs
  • LARGE EARLOBES – often as a result of aging or wearing large earrings. Earlobe size can be reduced
  • STRETCHED EARLOBES – from expanders, stretchers and other cosmetic adornments. These can be repaired

 

Earlobe procedures are usually performed under a local anaesthetic (ie. An injection to make the earlobe numb).  Stitches are in place for 5-7days.
