In brief: Minor Procedure
The edges of the adjacent split skin can be removed and the raw surfaces sutured back together. This is very commonly done.

In brief: Ear lobule repair
A stretched torn ear lobule can be repaired ; contoured to an improved shape by plastic/cosmetic surgeons as an office based procedure.
An ear stud can be placed immediately by a local flap technique during the repair. In the longterm, patients are advised to not wear heavy, dangling earrings to minimize recurrence of problem.

In brief: Minor procedure
Cleft(split) earlobes can be easily corrected under local anesthesia with a minor procedure.
Sutures would be placed to close the slit and then the ear could be repierced in about 3-4 months if desired.

In brief: Yes
We do this in the office frequently, both for males and females.
Local anesthesia is used. Sutures are placed. The sutures come out in about a week. We have patients hold off on re-piercing for a while, and then not have them pierce through the small scar.
