Split Earlobe Repair, Earlobe surgery, Stretched Earlobe reconstruction
The earlobe is one of the weakest parts of your ear, as it is unsupported by cartilage as the rest of your ear. This inherent lack of support, compounded by the desire we have to get the earlobe pierced creates a situation were over a period of time the piercing hole enlarges in size. The rate at which the earlobe piercing hole stretches out relates to how heavy and regularly the earrings are worn. Genetics also play a role as you might have weaker earlobes compared to others. Trauma to the earlobe often contributes to the earlobe splitting.
Earlobe split repair is therefore a common local anesthesia surgery. The nature of surgery often relates to the extent of the split, and can range from a simple freshening of edges and sutures to complicated flap and cartilage surgery.
