How to Repair Split or Stretched Earlobes

Split or stretched earlobes are a commonly seen problem at Meyer Clinic.

Split or elongated earlobes may be as a result of a number of factors such as trauma caused by contact sport, prolonged use of heavy earrings; the wearing of disc earrings and/or genetically weak ear lobes.

They can lead to discomfort and self-consciousness, as well as the inability to wear earrings.

Earlobe repair is primarily carried out to improve the cosmetic appearance of the area but on occasion it may be done for practical reasons where the hole is at risk of being continually snagged.

At Meyer Clinic, a repair for a split earlobe is performed by initially providing a local anaesthetic to the ear lobe. Once the area has been sufficiently numbed, the ear tissue is stitched back together using dissolvable stitches.

This procedure is completed in approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Most moles are harmless although it is important to ensure a doctor examines any mole that changes shape, colour or starts to irritate. Moles are very common and for some people they can have an effect on self-confidence, especially if the mole is on the face or other parts of the body where they can be seen. Moles can be removed through simple minor surgery. At Meyer Clinic, we offer private minor surgery services, giving you rapid access to first-class care.

Dark spots caused by the sun can vary in size and occur on skin that has been most exposed to solar rays over the years. They can prematurely age a person’s appearance while also having a negative impact on person’s self-esteem. We offer a range of treatments which can fade the appearance of age spots including Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy to deliver transformative and long-lasting results.

There is no need to put up with unwanted skin tags or other blemishes. In the right hands, these lesions can be removed with almost scarless results. At Meyer Clinic, our experienced GPs use a variety of simple techniques to remove unwanted blemishes with outstanding cosmetic results. We use the very latest techniques including shave excisions and cautery.
