What Is Earlobe Repair / Reduction?

Earlobe repair, or earlobe reduction surgery, is a collective term to refer to a group of ear plastic surgery procedures designed to reshape, resize and repair the earlobe.

This can include earlobe reduction, earlobe repair, stretched earlobe surgery, ear fold surgery and keloid ear surgery.

Ear plastic surgery procedures are typically required to correct genetic earlobe size and shape abnormalities, or those caused by external factors such as wearing heavy ear jewellery or the onset of age.

Why Do People Have It?

For many men and women, the size and shape of their earlobes can cause unhappiness and insecurity.

Whilst genetics plays the biggest role when it comes to earlobe shape and size, it is also true that external factors such as heavy jewellery and age can impact the size and shape of the earlobe, often in an asymmetrical fashion.

Ear plastic surgery procedures such as earlobe repair and earlobe reduction are extremely effective, straightforward and quick surgical procedures to correct these conditions.

Ear plastic surgery procedures typically take less than an hour, and can be performed under local anaesthetic.

Who Is Suitable?

Cadogan Clinic considers individuals fit for the procedure, if all of the following are true of them:

  • Physically and psychologically fit and healthy
  • Bothered by the size or shape of their earlobe or earlobes 
  • Have realistic expectations of what can be achieved by earlobe reduction surgery

Frequently Asked Questions

Keloid ear surgery is an ear plastic surgery procedure designed to address the problems caused by the formation of keloids at the site of ear jewellery.

These keloids are stimulated by an allergic response to the metal of the stud or sleeper of an earring. The typical sleeper is made of steel covered with a thin plating of gold – when this plating dissolves it exposes the underlying steel which contains impurities such as nickel that can stimulate the ear keloid.

Keloid ear surgery targets these keloids by surgically removing the keloids, allowing healing and then re-piercing 6 weeks later. Without treatment earlobe keloids can grow from the site of the piercing, on both the front and the back of the ear and eventually can replace the whole earlobe.

This cause of these ear keloids was discovered by Mr Bryan Mayou, the founder of the Cadogan Clinic, as a result of research done with the support of the Goldsmith’s Company.

Earlobe repair and earlobe reduction surgery are the most effective means for getting rid of a lump on the earlobe.
