What Is Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair also know as ear plastic surgery is a specialised plastic surgery procedure aimed at correcting various issues related to the earlobes. Whether you have a split, elongated, or stretched earlobe, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert has the expertise to restore the natural appearance and functionality of your earlobes. With years of experience and meticulous attention to detail, Dr. Rotsaert can address a range of earlobe concerns, including reducing the size of fleshy lobes and rejuvenating their overall appearance.

Things You Should Know Before Your Earlobe Repair Procedure In London

  1. Pre-procedure Preparation: Before undergoing earlobe repair with Dr Veerle Rotsaert, it is important to prepare for the procedure. This may involve avoiding blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as well as certain herbal supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding. Dr Rotsaert will assess your specific situation during the consultation and provide personalised instructions to ensure you are well-prepared for the procedure.

  2. Risks and Potential Complications: Like any surgical procedure, earlobe repair carries some inherent risks. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will discuss these risks with you, which may include infection, bleeding, scarring, or asymmetry. However, it is important to note that these risks are generally minimal, and Dr Rotsaert takes every precaution to minimise them. By carefully following post-operative instructions and attending follow-up appointments, you can help ensure a successful outcome.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: Dr Rotsaert will provide you with specific pre-procedure instructions to optimise your earlobe repair. This may involve avoiding excessive pulling or stretching of the earlobe, removing any jewellery from the affected area, and keeping the earlobe clean and free from infections prior to the procedure. It is important to follow these instructions closely to facilitate a smooth and successful surgery.

  4. Preparing for Recovery: Understanding the recovery process is crucial for achieving optimal results from your earlobe repair. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will guide you through the necessary steps, which may include keeping the earlobe clean and applying prescribed ointments or dressings. It is also advisable to avoid any activities that may put strain on the healing earlobe, such as heavy lifting or contact sports. By following Dr Rotsaert’s post-operative care instructions, you can help promote proper healing and minimize any discomfort.

  5. Questions to Ask: To ensure that you have a comprehensive understanding of the earlobe repair procedure, here are some questions you may consider asking Dr Veerle Rotsaert:

  • What technique will be used for my earlobe repair?
  • How long is the recovery period, and what can I expect during this time?
  • Will there be any visible scarring after the procedure?
  • Are there any restrictions on wearing earrings or other jewelry after the repair?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who have undergone earlobe repair?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

During earlobe repair surgery, a local anaesthetic is typically used to numb the area, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. This approach allows for precise surgical techniques while minimising any potential discomfort. Dr. Rotsaert will discuss the specific anaesthesia plan with you during your consultation, taking into account your preferences and medical history.

How Long Does Earlobe Repair Take?

The duration of an earlobe repair procedure varies depending on the complexity of the case. Generally, it takes approximately 30 minutes to one hour to complete the surgery. Dr. Rotsaert’s years of experience and attention to detail enable her to work efficiently while maintaining the highest standards of safety and aesthetic outcomes.

Dr. V's View On Earlobe Repair

“Earlobe repair is a procedure that I find particularly rewarding as a plastic surgeon. Often, individuals may have stretched or torn earlobes due to heavy earrings, accidents, or gauging. These issues can cause self-consciousness and dissatisfaction with one’s appearance. However, through earlobe repair, I have been able to help my patients regain confidence in their earlobes’ aesthetics and symmetry. By employing meticulous techniques, I strive to create natural-looking results, ensuring that the repaired earlobes blend seamlessly with the surrounding tissues. I believe in providing personalised care, addressing each patient’s unique concerns and goals to achieve a satisfying outcome. If you are considering earlobe repair, I would be delighted to guide you through the process and help you restore the natural beauty of your earlobes.”


Earlobe repair surgery typically does not require the use of garments or dressings. However, Dr Rotsaert may provide specific instructions on wound care and recommend the use of gentle skincare products to promote optimal healing and minimise any discomfort.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
