Earlobe Repair Procedure

How much does ear lobe repair cost?
The price of earlobe surgery will vary depending on the type of tear or asymmetry that needs to be repaired. The cost will also depend on whether the patient is interested in re-piercing or re-gauging the ear in the future.

Earlobe repair is a cosmetic surgery that is not covered by health insurance. It is a relatively simple procedure that can restore facial symmetry and boost self-confidence.

During your consultation, Dr. Yoo will examine your ear and create a surgical plan that best suits your needs. He will carefully listen to your goals and address any questions you may have about the process.

Nonsurgical option to correct droopy earlobes

Earlobe rejuvenation or “lobe lift” treatments are usually performed in the office, where hyaluronic acid fillers are used to plump up the skin of the earlobes. These procedures are very quick, with little downtime or recovery, and can be performed on their own or in conjunction with other facial injections to create a complete “liquid facelift.”

Surgical option for torn or asymmetrical earlobes

When a tear or asymmetry is too large for nonsurgical correction, a surgical earlobe repair is recommended. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in about an hour and will leave very little scarring.

Stretched/Gauged earlobes

When a stretch of the earlobe is present, it is slightly more complex to fix than a simple tear. A connective strip of tissue and skin is snipped, along with some surrounding skin, to rebuild the earlobe’s shape. Using either the layered closure or Z-plasty technique, stitches are removed in about 7-10 days.
