There a several reasons clients choose earlobe repair. One of the most common reasons is dilation of the earlobe due to gauges. Gauging of the earlobes is an ever-growing, popular trend amongst a broad range of groups. Gauges are also referred to as tunnels, cogs, caps, or plugs. Another reason for earlobe repair is trauma resulting an earlobe tear.

This simple earlobe repair will assist with closing the dilated loops, or tears. This will help you reverse the effects of having gauged ear rings or repair a traumatic tear. Reasons many individuals undergo an earlobe repair ranges from professional career choice, social settings, age related factors or just a simple change in style.


After a thorough evaluation and consultation, a care plan is developed. A simple out-patient procedure will be performed to close the dilated earlobe loop to reverse damage and return the earlobe to as close to normal as possible.

It is always encouraged by our providers to bring a pre-gauged earlobe picture or pre-trauma picture to the consultation.


After consent is obtained and a care plan is developed, your earlobe will be thoroughly cleaned. After local anesthesia is administered for your comfort, we will stabilize the site using a chalazion clamp or hemostats. Using a scalpel, the edges of the internal portion to the dilated loops are excised and de-epithelialized  to create a fresh wound.  This will allow us to suture the edges back together and allow the wound to heal.  There will always be a risk of scar tissue after the site has healed.

Patient has responded very well to this procedure and you will be given strict post care instructions.
