Earlobe repair is a relatively simple procedure done in the office with local anesthesia. To allow the lobe of the ear to heal back together, our Board-Certified Dermatologist cuts away the skin on the inside of the long hole or torn earlobe. The fresh edges are then sutured back together. Sutures are removed after one to two weeks. It is recommended to wait six weeks before re-piercing the ear. At Radiance Dermatology, Dr. Olowoyeye has the training and expertise to perform earlobe repairs with minimal discomfort, downtime, or issues with wound-healing.
