Background: Ear piercing and ear ornament wearing is an age old tradition. Elongated ear lobe and torn earlobe usually results from sudden stretch or continuous use of heavy earrings. Various surgical techniques have been described in literature. Each procedure has its own pros and cons. The choice will depend on individual preferences and the defect, partial or total, and should offer a lower chance of recurrence. The corrections can be made with or without preservation of the earring orifice. The innovative technique that I am describing focuses on treatment of elongated ear lobules with preservation of earing orifice and bilateral ear lobule repair. Method: This technique was applied on 3 patients and 6 months follow up was noted. Study carried out in year 2018 at Adorn Cosmetic Center, Ahmedabad. Results: Good post-operative results were achieved in all 3 patients with maintained ear lobe thickness and good shape and a good orifice. Conclusions: Our technique has an advantage of maintaining the normal ear lobe thickness, good earlobe shape and good orifice size. Above all it has advantage of very easy repair technique.
