Restore Natural Earlobe Contours

Though sometimes hidden beneath the hair, ears play an important role in framing the face and improving overall facial aesthetics. When the earlobes aren’t aesthetically pleasing, due to trauma or piercings, it can leave you feeling embarrassed or self-conscious. Whether your earlobe(s) has been torn, stretched, split, or you’re looking to repair the area after wearing a gauge, you’ve come to the right place! The aging process will continue to diminish aesthetics over time and with this minor surgical repair, your ears can remain attractive and naturally contoured. Our facial surgeon, Dr. Matthew Epstein, specializes in earlobe repair and with advanced cosmetic training, is skilled in minimally invasive treatment. Concern about the appearance of your earlobes is natural, and we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Epstein to discuss your aesthetic goals. Expertly returning your earlobe to the proper contours, he can help restore your ears with surgical precision to reduce scarring and promote the greatest long-term cosmetic results.

Easy Earlobe Repair

Earlobe repair surgery is a simple process for an expert like Dr. Epstein, who is skilled at redefining the most natural contours of your earlobes to optimize surgical outcomes and final aesthetics. While it only requires local anesthesia, we provide stronger levels of sedation  if necessary. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Epstein gently removes damaged skin, then carefully repositions the tissue before suturing the area—a process that takes as little as 20 minutes. Though the incision will take a few weeks to completely heal, swelling and discomfort commonly subside in just a few days. You’ll be able to re-pierce your ears in about six weeks. Don’t let stretched, torn, or split earlobes keep you from feeling confident! Dr. Epstein can help you return natural aesthetics to your ears with skilled surgical care at our Seattle, WA office.
