A common ear problem that is seen among men and women who have ear piercings is a stretched or completely torn earring hole or earlobe.
This can come about as a result of wearing extremely heavy earrings too often, or from a traumatic tearing of the lobe from an earring. By having a torn earlobe repair, you’ll be able to wear earrings again with comfort and confidence. Dr. Lee strives for a look that is natural and functional. It is her extensive skill and attention to detail that gives her the tools to perform some of the top torn earlobe repair Los Angeles has to offer. Having a torn earlobe repair surgery is a fairly simple procedure, and can actually be performed in-office.
Stretched or torn earlobes
Stretched, almost torn, or even completely torn earlobes can appear unattractive and draw attention away from your other features. It has become very popular for some people to intentionally stretch their earlobes as a fashion statement, by wearing heavy earrings that create large, gaping holes in the earlobes, causing them to hang languid. For others, stretched earlobes can be a result of an accident, or due to years of wearing heavy earrings.
Earlobe repair can be performed as a simple in-office procedure. Stretched or torn earlobe repair can help to either preserve or close a part of the original ear piercing. There is essentially no down time after stretched or torn earlobe repair. Patients are frequently amazed at how much a torn earlobe repair can improve their appearance of their faces and restore attention to their attractive features.

About torn earlobe repair
Routinely, Dr. Lee performs earlobe repair surgery under local anesthesia, so that the patient may remain awake, while still feeling comfortable and at ease. Dr. Lee will administer a local anesthetic to numb your earlobes. She will then conservatively remove any portions of the ear piercing that may be scarred, before closing the area with small sutures to help minimize any scarring. Dr. Lee takes great pride in being able to deliver some of the best torn earlobe repair Los Angeles can offer. We recommend using an advanced scar management cream to minimize any visible scarring. If you later elect to have your ears pierced again, you may feel free to do so once your earlobes have healed from the surgery.
Keloids as a result of ear piercings typically appear as scars that are thick, discolored, itchy, and abnormally raised. Ear keloids can be treated with steroid injections. That being said, if the ear keloids are persistent, they can be removed altogether, to help reduce the unsightly appearance and restore the appearance of your ears.
Dr. Lee aims to give her patients impressive looking results from having torn earlobe repair surgery, as well as granting you the ability to wear earring again, if you so choose.
