Split Ear Lobule.


Split earlobe ia common type of traumatic ear injury.Torn earlobes are clinically referred to as split earlobes or cleft earlobes .There are two types namely the incomplete split lobe and the complete split lobe.: The earlobes naturally receive very little blood flow, so they need to be repaired promptly to prevent permanent tissue damage.


Split earlobe injuries commonly result from :
  • Use of large heavy earrings
  • Earring gets caught or is pulled forcefully
  • Sudden trauma, including sports injuries or animal bites
  • Metal allergy


The common symptoms include:
  • Abnormal-looking earlobes
  • Infections
  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Cosmetic deformity


Repair of torn earlobe is a frequently performed aesthetic surgical procedure.The aesthetic goal is to leave the earlobe in a more natural shape with a round, not pointed, shape. This minor office-based procedure can be easily performed in a dermatology clinic.
  • Earlobe repair surgery- lobuloplasty
  • Dermal filler injections can improve the appearance of stretched earlobes

Can you glue a split earlobe?
Gluing your earlobe will not correct your tear. Repairing split earlobes is usually a minor procedure performed in the office under local anesthesia. The split usually needs to be cut out and resutured.
Does earlobe repair surgery hurt?
Earlobe repair surgery is one of the least invasive surgeries performed. Like any surgery that may leave you nervous, this surgery is done in a matter of 30 minutes and performed under a local anesthetic so you won't feel any pain.
Do ear lobes grow back together?
Unfortunately, gauged earlobe holes and large typical earring holes that have stretched over time will not bounce back to their original size and shape or “grow back together” — even if left alone and unfilled with earrings for a long period of time. The only way to correct these issues is with reconstructive surgery.
Can a dermatologist fix a split ear lobe?
It is possible to repair damaged earlobes, even if the damage is extensive and/or it occurred years ago. Earlobe repair surgery performed by an experienced, professional dermatologist can eliminate discomfort as well as any signs of damage.
Can I wear earrings after earlobe repair?
It would be nice to get your torn earlobe repaired and get new earrings all at once. However, it is recommended that you wait 6 to 8 weeks after earlobe repair to have your ears repierced.
