Tearing your earlobe is never a pleasant experience. Unfortunately significant weight or trauma can pull jewelry through the earlobe tissue causing the earlobe to be split in two. Richmond board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Burton Sundin can repair torn earlobes with earlobe reconstructive surgery.
Men and women both wear ear jewelry to enhance their appearance, therefore both men and women are at risk of a torn earlobe. A tear in the lobe or margin leaves a gap in the otherwise smooth connected edge. This tends to usually be very visible and hard to cover with hair or clothing. Avoiding heavy jewelry and wearing jewelry while playing sports will help reduce the risk of torn earlobes. Should your earlobes be torn, Dr. Burton can repair them using the latest in surgical techniques
