Earlobe tear repairs for elongated piercings or complete tear throughs can be a simple but highly satisfying procedure for patients. Done in the office under local, the ear can be repierced 4-6 weeks later. A small reduction in size is typical. Flap design along the lower border is typically done by Dr. Westreich, in order to ensure a smooth lobular edge, avoiding a notched appearance, which can occur when using a different repair technique.
