Earlobe surgery is a cosmetic, corrective surgical intervention whose goal is to improve the look of earlobes that are too big or malformed or which have been damaged by trauma, such as wearing earrings that are too heavy, having ear piercings or having an earlobe torn in an accident. Note that people who want to have their earlobes corrected after having stretched earlobes must first remove their plugs permanently for at least 3 to 6 months to allow the lobes to close as much as possible on their own.

The surgery, which takes 45 to 75 minutes, is performed under local anaesthesia.
- The small bandages placed on the earlobes can be removed the day after the operation. The absorbable sutures will disappear within a 2-week period.
- A postoperative appointment will take place 5 to 10 days after the surgery.
- Most patients return to work 48 hours after the surgery. However, those who must wear noise protection equipment or who are in contact with chemicals may need to wait longer to return to work.
- Patients must wait about 6 weeks before having their ears pierced again.
