Whether you are male or female, your hair is long or short, you wear earrings or don’t, ears affect your appearance. The lobes are especially noticeable. Earlobe repair surgery from Board-certified dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Ariel Ostad can help. New York women and men are enjoying a more natural, professional look thanks to his skill and artistry.



Earlobe repair is a relatively minor surgery to restore appealing lobe shape, framing your face attractively. It is ideal for the person who has:

  • Stretched earlobes from heavy jewelry or years of wearing pierced earrings.
  • Elongated piercings or tears from trauma (such as a baby yanking on an earring).
  • Enjoyed wearing gauges or plugs, but now wants earlobes returned to their original shape and size.

About the Procedure

Earlobe repair is an outpatient procedure performed in Dr. Ostad’s AAAASF accredited surgical facility. It typically takes about an hour, and there is little or no downtime. The ear is cleansed, and numbed with local anesthesia. Small incisions are made to reshape inner tissues, behind the lobe, and the visible front surface. Dr. Ostad uses extremely fine sutures to close the site, for minimal scarring.

The doctor may prescribe antibiotics and topical ointment. Usually over the counter analgesics are sufficient to manage residual discomfort, but talk with Dr. Ostad if you have concerns in this regard. The site is protected with a small sterile bandage for a few days. You must keep lobes clean and dry as possible for about three weeks to minimize risk of infection and promote healing.

If you choose to have ears re-pierced, you may do when healing is complete – usually about eight weeks.

Earlobe repair cost could be less than you’d spend on new pair of earrings. Call (212) 517-7900 to learn more about earlobe repair surgery at Ariel Ostad, MD, PC in New York.
