Earlobe Repair

Earlobe Repair – Torn, stretched or just large earlobes may be repaired or reduced by meticulous surgery under magnification and using the finest “hairs-breadth” dissolving stitches to carry out the repair. This procedure is a walk-in walk-out operation under local anaesthetic.

How can I help with Earlobe Repair?

Earlobes can become torn or distorted through the use of heavy earrings or deliberate “gauging” to dilate a piercing. As we age also the earlobe tends to become larger and droop which some people find undesirable.

It is rewarding to carefully and meticulously rectify these issues through delicate surgery carried out under local anaesthetic. The difference it can make in someone’s life is often greater than I imagine and that is very satisfying to see.

What is Earlobe Repair?

Earlobes can be torn or stretched due to a number of reasons, such as wearing heavy earrings or accidentally catching them on something. This can cause the lobe to become thin and misshapen, and in some cases, completely tear away from the head.

Earlobe repair is a relatively simple procedure that involves stitching the lobe back together. It can be done under local anaesthetic as a day case, and the results are usually very good.

If you have stretched or torn earlobes, then earlobe repair may be a good option for you. The procedure is relatively simple and can be done under local anaesthetic. Results are usually very good, so if you are unhappy with your earlobes, then please book a consultation today.

What does the treatment for Earlobe Repair involve?

The treatment for a damaged earlobe involves meticulous surgery to re-establish the original shape of the earlobe. The skin is then closed with very fine stitches. The scar from this surgery is usually barely visible.

Earlobe repair is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed under local anaesthesia as an outpatient procedure. It only takes a few minutes to repair each earlobe.

Thread Vein Treatment

June 10, 2024

We consulted Mr Payne about thread veins in my legs and my husband’s nose. We are very pleased with the service he provided and the results. We were seen promptly for an initial consultation and Mr Payne was very thorough and informative. We were given an appointment for a week later for treatment which he, with his very capable assistant, carried out professionally and sympathetically. We are, therefore, delighted to give a 5 star rating.
