Earlobe Reconstruction

Earlobe Reconstruction

Earlobe reconstruction surgery in Calgary.

Frustrated with your stretched, torn, damaged, or large earlobes? We offer earlobe reconstruction surgery under local anesthesia to help give your confidence a boost.

Why Earlobe Reconstruction?

Maybe your earlobes were damaged, torn, or stretched from jewellery or an accident, or you’re just not happy with the size or shape of your lobes – either way, we can help reconstruct your ears with mild discomfort and great results.

Pain & Scarring Minimal
We take extra care to sew up incisions with tiny stitches to keep scarring on earlobes to a minimum.

Quick Procedure
Appointments are quick – usually about 20 minutes for each ear which will have you in and out of your procedure quickly.

Patients Typically Go Home Right After
You can go home as soon as surgery has been completed.

Re-Piercing is Possible
No need to say goodbye to your favourite pair of earrings. Once the earlobes heal, you should be able to re-pierce your ears. However, we recommend waiting at least 8 weeks after your surgery.

Conditions Treated

How Earlobe Reconstruction Works

Wondering if earlobe reconstruction surgery is worth it? If you’ve experienced trauma or damage to the ear or your heavy jewellery has stretched out your lobes, our answer is yes! Under an outbound patient basis using local anesthesia, we remove excess hanging tissue to refine the earlobe to its original and natural shape leaving you to feel fantastic about the condition of your ears.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does surgery take?

Earlobe reconstruction surgery requires a consultation and a follow up appointment, but the actual procedure itself will only take 45 minutes of your time.

Are there any risks?

Like any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of infection. Your nurse will review post-operative instructions with you before you are discharged, and at anytime if you feel like you are experiencing abnormal side effects, please call our office immediately.

Will insurance cover this procedure?

Cosmetic procedures are not usually covered by your insurance company. If you have any questions to what your plan covers, it is best to talk with your insurance provider prior to treatment.
