Earlobe Repair

Ear lobes can become damaged in a variety of ways. The most common way that ear lobes are damaged is by wearing oversized earrings for an extended period of time. But ear lobe damage can also occur from accidents or even the passage of time. Thankfully, correcting ear lobe damage is one of the easiest cosmetic surgery procedures that exists.

If you have a stretched or torn earlobe and you live in the Toronto area, the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre offers fast, easy repairs.


Earlobe repair is a procedure that should never require a general anesthetic and normally takes only about 15 minutes per ear to complete. The procedure involves excising torn or frayed edges of the damage and then stitching the damaged edges back together. This procedure results in very little scarring, if any.

Recovery time from ear lobe repair is exceptionally fast. You should have no difficulty returning home immediately after the surgery and, if the procedure is performed early enough in the day, you may even be able to return to work the same day. You will need to avoid strenuous activity for about a week after the surgery to avoid causing new damage to your ear lobe.


About two weeks after the procedure you will also need to return to the clinic to have the stitches removed. As long as you are careful during those two weeks, this procedure should be simple and painless. If you experience any difficulties at all during the recovery process, the staff at the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre is always available to provide assistance and advice.


A candidate for ear lobe repair is any person that has a stretched, enlarged, or damaged ear lobe. The source of the damage doesn’t matter, nor does it matter how complete the tearing is. The procedure works equally well on any type of damage.

Like with all surgeries, Dr. Chivers will want to consult with you before your ear lobe surgery to identify exactly what needs to be prepared and to confirm that you are physically healthy enough to endure a surgical procedure. However, since the procedure is so simple, it is incredibly rare that a patient is unable to receive the surgery due to medical concerns.
