Earlobe Repair

Earlobes can be injured easily, changing their shape and detracting from a person’s appearance. Especially with pierced ears, it is fairly common for earrings to be ripped out in an accident or trauma, leaving the lobes damaged. Also, over many years of wearing large or heavy earrings, the lobe can stretch and elongate into an unnatural shape. Dr. Khosh is a board certified facial plastic surgeon that is experienced in the delicate procedure of repairing damaged or misshaped ear lobes with ear surgery.

Most earlobe damage is due to piercing. Earlobes can be torn in half when an earring is pulled through the lobe, leaving a split lobe. Additionally, years of talking on the phone with heavy earrings on can cause the lobe to elongate and change shape. This can lead to large holes in the earlobe that can be embarrassing to many people.

Undergoing Earlobe Repair Surgery

The good news is that under the experienced hands of Dr. Khosh, earlobe repair surgery can be done quickly and effectively. Many minor earlobe repairs can be done with only local anesthesia, repairing the damage with precise stitches. For more severe cases, the earlobe may need to be reshaped and mended using otoplasty techniques to replace lost skin or cartilage.

If you have earlobes that have been injured or have become misshaped over the years, you can have them repaired back to their natural beauty with the help of Dr. Khosh. In most cases, once the lobes are repaired and healed, you can even have them pierced again to wear your favorite earrings. Contact us today to learn more about earlobe repair and to schedule a consultation with Dr. Khosh.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
