Earlobe repair is a surgical procedure for people with stretched earlobes as a result of a ‘tribal’ ear piercing, also known as a flesh tunnel. Tribal ear piercing is performed by gradually increasing the diameter of the piercing in the earlobe with progressively increased diameter rings. Split Earlobe Repair is an additional procedure that provides for an earlobe which has torn entirely, as a result of overstretching or accidental tearing.
When the earlobe is stretched to more than 8mm with a tribal ear piercing, it is unlikely that the hole will fully contract to its original size. This results in an abnormally shaped earlobe which is often difficult to hide with hair, especially for men with shorter hairstyles. If you feel that your stretched or split earlobes are affecting your appearance, social life and career.
