Split Earlobe Repair

Split, torn or stretched earlobes can be caused by a variety of things including earrings accidentally tearing through the lobe, gauges that you no longer want, or constant wear of heavy earrings. You might be wondering how to heal a ripped ear piercing and if it is something that can be treated at home. Unfortunately, there are no reputable home remedies for torn earlobes; however, correcting a split, torn or stretch earlobe is a fairly common and relatively inexpensive outpatient procedure.

In order to correct a split earlobe, a widened piercing hole or a stretched ear piercing, one of our licensed dermatologists here at Cayce Med Spa will need to suture up the holes or tears. This procedure is minor and typically takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, with local anesthesia being applied to the earlobe. It's so minor, in fact, that you can drive yourself home after the procedure.
