Thank you for your question. The torn ear lobe should be repaired. It is a minor procedure that is performed using local anesthesia. You should make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon who can repair this in his office. I am available if you have more questions.

Does this need to be done immediately? I am supposed to be away for 10 day starting tomorrow on business

This is not an emergency. It can be performed at any time that is convenient for you.
