Earlobe deformities can include a cleft earlobe, an earlobe remnant or tab, and earlobe duplication.
These are rare congenital conditions.
Treatment of these earlobe deformities is surgical and they can be repaired as an outpatient procedure.
Depending on the age of your child, repair may be done as an in-office procedure or in the operating room.
An earlobe remnant may be able to be removed in off under local anesthesia in very early infancy.
