Earlobe repair is a safe, fast surgery, which can fix the earlobe following one or more problems. Problems in the earlobe most often occur when someone is wearing earrings, which are heavy or stretch the earlobe from within (like a gauge). When heavy earrings are worn, the earlobe can dramatically stretch and, in some cases, the hole of the ear piercing can tear through the lobe, resulting in a slit. This can also happen if someone or something attaches to your earring and pulls or you jerk your head causing the earring to rip through the skin. Schedule a consultation to see how your torn earlobe can be corrected today.

"I came for a consult and was put on the schedule for surgery the same day (for roughly a month later). The girls in the office are fantastic and efficient and great with follow up calls and scheduling, etc. Dr. Kelling is lovely and we talked extensively about my history and concerns about my procedure (no fancy stuff, just airflow issues). As for my procedure (septoplasty and much needed turbinate reduction), I am overwhelmingly overjoyed at being able to breathe freely agai...n. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and alert and I ask myself if I even need a cup of coffee. I’m no longer a slave to caffeine in the morning, I just drink it because I enjoy it. I can now smell colors! Ok, maybe not colors, but I am moved to tears at least once a day at all the things I can smell and taste again after nearly a decade of deficient airflow. My only regret is I did not find Dr. Saman sooner. Though I did not take advantage of his artistic talent in rhinoplasty (though I would have totally gone for it five years ago), I felt like it was best to overshoot rather than undershoot when it comes to a surgeon’s skill. He is very transparent about his procedures and techniques on social media, I found him on Snapchat and followed on Instragram as well and I have to say it didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable and confident he could help me. Thank you Dr. Saman! You have helped me heal in more ways than I can express."- J.A. / Facebook / Jul 10, 2018

"Dr. Saman is very knowledgeable and he really knows he's doing. I am very happy with the results of my rhino/septoplasy. He's very detail oriented. I was also seen by Dr. Kelling who is also very nice and spent a lot of time explaining things to me about my healing process. His staff is also very nice and welcoming. Would recommend Dr. Saman to anyone."- R.K. / Google / Nov 16, 2018

"Dr. Saman is an amazing physician and man. He actually saved my life. I had developed a rare infection in my sinuses that had spread to my eye and brain. He immediately performed surgery and as a result, I survived a fatal disease. He is a compassionate doctor. He is quick to make himself available to help others. I'm very fortunate I found Dr. Saman!"- R. / Healthgrades / Nov 07, 2018

Earlobe Repair FAQs
Can You Repair A Gauged Ear?
For the case of ear gauges, over time, the earlobe stretches to accommodate these earrings. If someone chooses to take the gauges out, the lobe can be so stretched out from the enlarged hole that you can see right through it. Earlobe repair surgery corrects all of these common issues.
