Torn earlobe repair is mostly done on female patients that have had an ear piercing pull through the lobe of the ear. However, the more common procedure is one in which the piercing has been elongated and not pulled completely through. Both procedures can be done in the office under local anesthesia.
Some patients feel that the lobe of their ear is too large (mega lobe) or misshaped. It is a relatively quick procedure to reshape the lobe to the desired form. A wedge can be removed, or the entire ear lobe can be reshaped. It is never too late in life to correct this problem, and it can be corrected on adults as well
