Most ear repairs can be performed onsite in our state-of-the-art facility. Whether you are looking to repair a small or large tear in your earlobe, Dr. Plamondon and our talented team of staff can help you obtain natural-looking results. If you are uncertain that you need a plastic surgeon to correct your damaged earlobe, please call to schedule a consultation. Dr. Plamondon can examine your condition and determine if this procedure is right for you.

Surgical Technique

Earlobe repair surgery will be safely performed with a local anesthetic to numb the target area. The majority of earlobe tears can be corrected with sutures that close up the area and mend the problem. If the holes are much larger or more complicated, Dr. Plamondon will discuss different surgical options to recreate your earlobe. You may also need both ears to be altered during treatment to ensure they look symmetrical and balanced. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and bandaged so they can remain safeguarded for healing. 

What to Expect

After the earlobe treatment is complete and it is safe to leave our office, you will rest and recover at home. Dr. Plamondon or a member of our team will give you detailed aftercare instructions to follow on your own. It is important to not touch or scratch the ears. Avoid laying on the ears; instead, you should be sleeping in an upright position for the first several days. Dr. Plamondon asks to see her ear surgery patients back within the first week — during this time, Dr. Plamondon will remove the bandages and review the progress of the ears. Your results will continue to look better as the ears heal.
