I have a particular interest in the repair of the split earlobe and have published a technique to repair the earlobe while keeping the hole.  Direct suture of the split earlobe can result in a notch in the earlobe if the scar contracts over time.  Furthermore, it means that the ear will need to be pierced in a new, unscarred area and this can cause asymmetry with piercings in the opposite ear .
 
To overcome these problems, I perform split earlobe repair using a double flap technique which avoids a straight-line scar that is prone to contracture and allows for the earring hole to be recreated in the original position and so earrings can be worn again without re-piercing.
 
This technique can be done under local anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure.  If enough notice is given, I can often perform the procedure on the same day as the consultation.
