Incomplete Earlobe Tear Repair

Procedure Details


Earlobe repair

The earlobe can be thought of as a three layered structure.  The outside layers are the skin, and the inner layer is the strength layer comprised of dense connective tissue (sort of like the grissel in a tough steak).

The repair was performed using a local anesthetic to numb the lobe.  Followig this, a scalpel was used to removed the scar tissue and create raw, "sticky surfaces" that would heal together.

The tough inner layer was first closed with a dissolving suture, and the skin edges were carefully approximated using a suture that was removed at two weeks.  The ear was repierced at approximately a month, and the postop photos were taken at 2 months with the new earring in place.
