Background Earlobes are considered as an important element in the cosmetic feature of the entire ear and face. Several techniques have been suggested to repair the torn earlobe. These corrections have been done to restore the natural appearance and shape of the ear for cosmetic, professional, or social reasons. Aim The aim of the present study was to present and discuss the technique used in the Unit of Plastic Surgery at Al-Azhar University Hospital, New Damietta, Egypt, for the repair of earlobe clefts. Settings and design A prospective study was carried out on the procedures used to repair split earlobes in our hospital. Materials and methods We present a personal and geometrical modification of the double-lobed flap carried out on 24 patients with split earlobes. Results The anatomical curvature of the earlobe was restored apart from reducing the skin retraction without causing scars or adding skin grafts. Conclusion We proved that our technique has many advantages and improved cosmetic results.
