Frequently Asked Questions about Torn Lobe -FAQS

What is a torn lobe?

 A torn ear lobe is a tear caused by the weight of the earrings or by a sudden pull with exaggerated enlargement of the orifice of the earlobe and in some cases even a total tear by dividing the earlobe in two. We also see it in patients who have used dilators and wish to remove them.

 How is the torn lobe repair procedure?

It is a simple procedure that we perform at Clinica Sanza. We arrange under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis, the tear removing a little skin to bring both parts together and leaving a scar little visible or invisible. This procedure is very similar to the reduction of very prominent lobes.

How long does the procedure take?

It is a procedure that takes about 30 minutes, and then you can leave and perform daily activities, including wearing earrings from the same day.

How’s the post-op?

The recovery is very fast with immediate employment, simply take a few stitches in the ear lobe that we will remove after approximately 10 days.

Can men do it?

Yes, it is increasingly common for men who want to remove piercings or dilators and leave the lobes as they werebefore they were used.
