Otoplasty or ear pinning surgery is generally performed to pin back and reduce the size of large and/or protruding ears that may cause an unaesthetic appearance.

Stretched or torn Ear Lobe Repair is one of the most routinely performed surgical procedure at Medaesthetics®. Dr Ehsan Jadoon offers minimally invasive dermatological surgical procedures on face and neck.

How is the ear lobe repair performed?

Local anaesthetic is injected with a very fine needle. Once the area is numb, the damaged earring holes are gently and carefully excised. There is virtually no pain associated with this procedure. The incision is then maticulously repaired using fine stitching on the front and the back of the ear lobe. Stitches are removed in 5 to 7 days.

How long will my ear lobe repair take?

Treatments take about 30–60 minutes.

What are the risks associated with ear lobe repair?

Infection is the biggest risk with ear lobe repair. We advise our patients to keep a close eye on the treated area during the healing phase, to keep it clean and notify us immediately if there are any signs of infection. Oral antibiotics are warranted if infection occurs. There are some other rare complication which are discussed with the patient at the time of consultation.

Who should not undergo ear lobe repair?

The following patients are advised to avoid ear lobe repair:

  • Patients prone to chronic infections.
  • Patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Patients who have active cold sores.
  • Those who are taking systemic steroids.
  • Those taking anti-coagulant medication.
  • Patients with history of keloid scarring.

(If there is any doubt, please discuss this with our doctor).
