Split And Stretched Earlobe Correction


Split or stretched earlobes can occur for a number of reasons, such as wearing large stretcher flesh tunnels or other forms of ear wear. However, once the earlobe is stretched to a certain point, it’s impossible for it to repair itself without surgical assistance.

Dr Sof can reconnect the split or stretched earlobe and restore your ears to how they should naturally be. Dr Sof has expertise in both earlobe repair and earlobe correction

Split And Stretched Earlobe Correction Procedure


Considering a split and stretched earlobe correction to restore the appearance of your earlobes? Discover what to expect when you choose Dr. Sofiane Rimouche for your earlobe correction journey:

Consultation and Evaluation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sof. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sof will listen attentively to your concerns, assess your ear anatomy, and discuss your goals for earlobe correction. He will perform a thorough examination to determine if a split and stretched earlobe correction is the most suitable option to address your needs.

Preparation: On the day of your procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility prepared for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed before administering anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Surgical Technique: Dr. Sof will employ advanced surgical techniques to address split and stretched earlobes and restore a natural earlobe contour. Depending on the extent of the damage, Dr. Sof may recommend various techniques such as direct closure, flap reconstruction, or tissue grafting.

Direct Closure: For minor splits or elongation, Dr. Sof may perform a direct closure by removing the damaged tissue and suturing the earlobe back together.

Flap Reconstruction: For more extensive splits or deformities, Dr. Sof may utilise flap reconstruction techniques. This involves rearranging nearby tissue to cover the defect and create a seamless earlobe appearance.

Tissue Grafting: In cases of significant tissue loss, Dr. Sof may recommend tissue grafting to restore volume and shape to the earlobe. This involves transferring tissue from another area of the body to reconstruct the earlobe.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the split and stretched earlobe correction procedure, you’ll begin to notice the improved appearance and symmetry of your earlobes. Dr. Sof’s approach aims to achieve natural-looking results that enhance your features while maintaining harmony and balance.


Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may notice initial improvements, the complete results of your Split and Stretched Earlobe Correction may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

Guidance on Return to Activities: Your personalised plan for gradually resuming daily activities will be carefully determined in collaboration with Dr. Sof, ensuring a smooth transition back to your regular routine.
