What does cosmetic ear surgery mean?

Tags:torn earlobe earring

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?

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.

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

A torn earlobe, stretched or gauged earlobe can be repaired under local and is frequently done for just your situation
