People undergo body modifications like piercing, gauging, and tattoos for many reasons.

Fashion, cultural traditions, and making strong statements about individuality are often at the core of choices to make permanent or semi-permanent changes to the body. Social norms regarding these practices have changed dramatically over recent years, and many things that were considered highly taboo in the past no longer have the same stigma. However, when earlobe stretching, or gauging, goes too far, earlobe repair surgery is a common request for people in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Earlobe Repair Surgery model

Earlobe repair is performed under local anesthesia. An incision is made to remove any scar tissue or excess tissue.

The clean tissue remaining is then stitched back together. The procedure typically takes less than an hour. The recovery from earlobe repair surgery is generally painless and requires only basic wound care and removal of stitches at the appropriate time. Some swelling may occur during the first day or two, but earlobe revision will not necessitate lost work or other physical limitations. Our Philadelphia earlobe repair patients who wish to re-pierce their ears should wait at least two months from the time of surgery.

Anyone who has earlobes that are stretched, torn, or have an enlarged piercing may benefit from earlobe repair surgery. Earlobe repair is effective for repairing ears damaged by wearing heavy earrings or having an earring caught or pulled from the ear.

Anyone who wants to restore or enhance the appearance of their earlobes should consider earlobe revision. At Morgenstern Center, we strive to deliver the best earlobe repair Philadelphia has to offer. This reconstructive facial surgery can help your earlobes look somewhat like they used to. Many people with gauged ears seek earlobe revision in order to join the military.

  • Lacerated or torn earlobes
  • Stretched earlobes
