Just like other parts of the body and face, earlobes lose elasticity over time. This naturally causes them to droop and sag as we get older, and the result can be exacerbated by some of the beauty rituals we partake in.

For example, choosing to create gauged ear piercings (the deliberate stretching of a healed piercing in the lobe) or wearing heavy earrings over a long period of time can both elongate the earlobes. These issues may even be worsened if an ear piercing begins to tear, producing a cleft ear. Cleft ears often happen when someone removes clothing over their head and an earring catches on the fabric, ripping the skin — or when a child unintentionally grabs and pulls on an earring.

Fortunately, if you dislike your earlobes currently because they are too long or have an expanded piercing hole or if your piercing has been torn, there are steps you can take to ameliorate the problem.

Earlobe Repair Surgery to the Rescue!

No matter what the cause of your lengthened or misshapen earlobes, if you’re unhappy with them, there is a solution. Namely, you can have earlobe repair surgery .

Earlobe repair surgery is a form of cosmetic plastic surgery, and compared with most procedures, it’s quite minor. The process itself takes place in-office with topical or local anesthetic so that it’s completely painless. Everything takes just slightly more than an hour, and the recovery time is quick. You can return to regular activity immediately following the procedure, and final results can generally be seen in a few months.

Unfortunately, this is the only procedure that can adequately fix severely drooping or torn earlobes. Elongated earlobes will not bounce back and get shorter over time, and expanded and lengthened piercings will not grow back together. There are no topical creams or other procedures that will effectively repair the problem.
