“Trauma is not the only reason people get stretched or torn ear lobes. In fact, many people are actually reacting to the metal from the studs of their earrings without even realizing it. For this reason, after I repair the ear and personally re-pierce the lobe, I instruct every patient on how to prevent this in the future.” – Dr. Azzi
Split earlobe repair is a common procedure. It nearly always is performed under local anesthesia in the office. Dr. Azzi performs these repairs meticulously to ensure a natural and pleasing result.
