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.

Extremely impressed and would highly recommend Simon

I recently had two cysts on my head removed by Simon and his lovely nurse Becky. They made me feel at ease and the quality and care was very professional. Simon explained everything in detail, was extremely focused and Becky was just the tonic to settle any nerves.

There was very little discomfort, the aftercare was explained in detail and I’m happy to say, after 6 weeks the results are amazing.

I would highly recommend Simon and his team without hesitation.

I would like to express my thanks to Simon Payne for the removal of the two large anal skin tags that were a terrible nuisance.

The procedure was painless due to the application of the numbing gel and subsequent injections and was completed quite quickly.

I had expected a lengthy healing process but was very surprised that after two to three weeks with little pain and no bleeding the problem had been successfully resolved.

I would certainly recommend consulting at his surgery and it was also far less expensive than other private clinics. Ten out of ten!

Simon removed four cysts from my head. He was very kind, attentive and a good listener during consultation. He explained everything clearly and I felt happy and confident to go ahead with the procedure. The removal took just 45 minutes and I am delighted with the results. In 6 weeks everything was healed and stitches gone, and no after care was needed. Thank you Simon.
