A torn or split earlobe is one of the most common aesthetic deformities of the ear.  This can result from an earlobe that is pierced in an improper position, heavy earrings, or from trauma to the lobe.  Regardless, it can cause distress to the patient who wants to continue to wear earrings or would like to restore symmetry to their earlobes.  Fortunately, there is a simple and effective procedure that can fix these earlobe tears in the office.  In some patients, the earlobe can be re-pierced on the day of the repair.
