One of the most common injuries to the ears are torn earlobes. Earrings and other jewelry that are worn in piercings can pose a risk to the earlobe. Earrings may accidentally be pulled through the earlobe. Aging, combined with the weight of jewelry, can elongate piercings until they split the ear lobe. At City Facial Plastics, we offer earlobe repair to fix tears and damage to restore a natural appearance.

A person’s earlobes are constructed of fatty tissue and skin. They come in various sizes, shapes and forms, which are unique to each person. When earlobes are pierced to accommodate various forms of jewelry or accessories, from smaller studs to larger, heavier “gauges,” these delicate areas can become stretched, enlarged, ripped or torn. This can make the ear lobes unattractive and unusable for most types of ear jewelry and accessories. Earlobe reconstruction and repair can restore them back to their normal shape and size. They will look like they did prior to being stretched or torn.

Rejuvenating Aging Earlobes

One of the reasons earlobes tear is a result of aging. Like the rest of the face and body, ear lobes change with age. Pierced ears can sag after many years of wearing heavy jewelry. The holes can elongate, making them unattractive and susceptible to tearing. Our doctor uses plastic surgery techniques to restore a natural-appearing ear lobe, providing a more youthful shape and size.

Dr. Gary Linkov is a talented facial plastic surgeon who performs earlobe repairs and rejuvenations at our office in NYC. Most ear lobe corrections can be performed with local anesthesia as an office visit. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Linkov to determine the best repair option for your damaged earlobe.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
