Repair of earlobe is carried out under local anaesthetic. This procedure is usually very well tolerated and the discomfort experienced is minimal. The torn skin edges are excised and the fresh edges are stitched together with sutures that need to remain in place for one or two weeks depending on the clinical situation. This is decided at the time of surgery. You will return to our clinics at the agreed date to have sutures removed. Stristrips/Paper stitches are normally applied over the real stitches and the patient is advised to keep them dry for at least two days.
