At the Upper East Side office of Dr. Umbareen Mahmood we often see patients with torn or stretched earlobes due to earrings. Earrings are one of the most common contributors to earlobe damage. Although earrings look great, these fashion statements sometimes have damaging consequences to the ears. Over time, or due to trauma, earlobes can become elongated or split into two by earrings. Large ear piercings such as gauges, or other types of ear accessories, can also significantly stretch out the delicate earlobe tissue.
“Dr. Mahmood is the best and her work is fantastic! She is professional, super friendly, understanding, puts you at ease, takes her time, explains everything and gives suggestions. There are plenty of adjectives I can add but not enough space. She dealt extremely well with my anxiety for my earlobe repair and the results were awesome with NO scar.” ~ RealSelf

Recovery & aftercare
After the procedure at our Upper East Side plastic surgery practice, patients are advised to keep the site of the repair clean and avoid applying any pressure on the earlobe. Some mild discomfort is normal and can typically be managed without pain medication. Normal activity such as showering and exercise can resume within 24 hours of your procedure. Patients should not submerge the surgical site until the area is fully healed and sutures are removed. Surgical sutures are removed one week after the procedure and patients should wait approximately 6 months before re-piercing their ears to prevent poor scarring or earlobe injury. We offer ear re-piercing at our Upper East Side location for your convenience!
Additional earlobe conditions
Abnormal earlobe scars, or keloid scars, can also be addressed with surgery. These raised scars form in pierced areas or due to an injury to the lobe. Earlobe keloid scars can be particularly prominent and can be firm to the touch. Aside from being cosmetically bothersome and causing emotional distress, these scars can be painful and itchy. During your consultation, Dr. Mahmood will determine the best treatment option to remove the keloid, reconstruct the earlobe, and prevent the keloid from recurring.
