Split Earlobe Correction London

Split or stretched earlobes are a common problem that Maisam Fazel can correct with a simple surgical procedure.


The earlobe is a thin and delicate area of skin and fat that can easily stretch and split after wearing heavy earrings for many years. Tribal earrings can cause the hole to become enlarged and the lobe significantly stretched. Accidental trauma can also cause the earlobe to split.

Split earlobe correction thus can correct:

  • Split or torn earlobes
  • Enlarged holes
  • Stretched, sagging lobes
