What does cosmetic ear surgery mean?

Several years ago I had my ear ring pulled out by a thief and it tore my earlobe. I remained with the skin torn and uneven. Can it be repaired? Does it fall under the cosmetic ear surgeries?

Absolutely.  We do this in our office for patients under local anesthesia, and pierce is about 8 weeks later.

Hi Katyone

A torn earlobe is a very common situation and is either completely torn, or just stretched.  The fix is very easy, done under local anesthesia, and takes less than a half hour.  I do quite a few in the office every year.


Have a look at my site for info that will answer your question visually.
