At the Bradford MySkyn Clinic, we offer a variety of ear lobe repair and reduction options, so take some time to read about what we have available.
Ear lobe repair or reduction is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to correct or reduce deformities in the ear lobe. Deformities may be caused by body modification, accidents or genetics.
Whatever has caused you to come to this page today, never feel regret over a decision you made to modify your body in the past.
Body modification is seen across cultures and across centuries and is a natural human impulse.
Wanting to change your appearance – whether to fit in or stand out – is valid either way.
Before you start this process, you should be aware that it is not always possible to repair extreme skin tunnels. That being said, even if we cannot fully fix them, it may be possible to improve them.
All ear lobe correction surgery at MySkyn in Bradford is carried out by our consultant plastic surgeon, Mr Sharif Al-Ghazal.

What can be treated?
Stretched Earlobe – This is where a pierced ear has been stretched until the pierced hole becomes a ‘tunnel’. The larger the tunnel, the more difficult the repair, although repair is possible in most cases.
Split Earlobe – This is where the earlobe is torn, usually from a piercing being pulled; perhaps during sports, for example.
Prominent Earfold – This procedure involves pinning back protruding ears. At MySkyn, we offer a range of prominent earfold treatments and it is best that you book a consultation to discuss which one may benefit you.
What is the ear lobe repair process?
You will first have a consultation with Mr Sharif Al-Ghazal where he can assess your suitability for your desired procedure and address any concerns you may have.
Depending on the surgery you are scheduled for, the procedure could take as little as 30 minutes for two ears. You will receive a local anaesthetic to numb the pain.
You can resume your normal daily activities immediately afterwards, however you may need to return to Bradford to have stitches removed. Any stitches put in place will be visible for about a week, and any scars will fade over time if treated properly.
Full healing can take 4-6 weeks.
