What is earlobe repair?

Earlobe repair accomplishes precisely what its name implies: reshaping and restoration of the earlobe. Patients who undergo this procedure usually seek to repair damaged, stretched, or torn earlobes and regain the natural look they desire. 

Benefits of earlobe repair with Dr. Courtney

When you choose our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Courtney, for your earlobe surgery in Houston, you’ve just entered into a partnership with a professional who genuinely has your best interest in mind. While each procedure will be as unique as you are, he will do his very best to ensure:

  • More symmetrical earlobes
  • Tighter earlobe skin
  • Natural-looking results
  • Relief from discomfort
  • A boost in confidence and self-esteem

What happens during an earlobe repair procedure?

Earlobe repairs are performed in the office under local anesthesia. This means your procedure will only take 15-30 minutes of actual operating time, and you’ll be able to return home the same day.

After administering local anesthesia, Dr. Courtney will carefully repair and suture your ears together in the most natural way possible. You won’t feel a thing, and will be on your way in no time.

What should I expect during my earlobe repair recovery?

After your procedure, Dr. Courtney will give you a long list of aftercare instructions to set you up for a successful recovery. Patients typically have their sutures removed in the office before the one-week mark. You will continue to see improvement over the next several weeks as your body gradually heals. You’ll have to hold off a few months until you can flaunt your best earrings once again, but most patients agree that it’s well worth the wait.

Real Patient

Is earlobe repair right for me?

If you have any of the conditions outlined above, you will likely be a suitable candidate for this procedure. That said, Dr. Courtney’s chief priority is patient safety, which is why he strongly recommends that you:

  • Are in good health
  • Have a realistic idea of what this procedure can do
  • Have any of the earlobe issues as described in the previous sections
  • Have mental or emotional distress from these problems
  • Are mentally sound and ready for surgery
  • Do not smoke or drink excessively

If you meet these crucial criteria, your next step is to meet with Dr. Courtney and our team for an in-depth consultation.

FAQ:

Earlobe Repair

How long should I wait to re-pierce my ears after earlobe repair surgery?

Typically Dr. Courtney advises patients to wait six weeks before piercing their ears. Your body will need an adequate amount of time to heal to avoid any additional damage.

Can I re-pierce my ear in the same exact spot?

It’s better to re-pierce your ear in a slightly different spot. Because your original earring hole is now likely in scar tissue, it will not be as strong, and can tear again.

How much does it cost to repair a torn earlobe in Houston, TX?

Each patient’s procedure will be unique to them, so prices will vary upon the extent of the operation. That said, Dr. Courtney provides very cost-effective earlobe repairs in Houston and will be happy to work with you on these financial aspects.

Does insurance cover split earlobe repair in Houston, TX?

Most insurance policies will not cover this surgery, so it will be an out of pocket cost. We do not want this to deter you, and we will do everything in our power to help you as much as we can.
