A torn earlobe can create a distracting and unattractive appearance, often resulting from heavy earrings, posts or trauma to the ear. Earlobes are made of soft cartilage that is easily damaged, especially if they have already been pierced to accommodate jewelry. If you have a torn earlobe you want repaired, trust the expertise of Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, in NYC to restore a beautiful, natural appearance.

Many men and women have ear piercings or posts placed in their ear lobes. Unfortunately, this procedure can lead to tears in the earlobe or elongated earlobes. This is from wearing heavy earrings or if the jewelry is pulled through the lobe. The result is either a partially torn earlobe with a large, gaping hole or a lobe that is torn in half. The good news is that Dr. Rosenberg can repair most damaged earlobes in his office with a simple cosmetic procedure.

Earlobe Surgery

Torn earlobes cannot be simply stitched back together. Since skin and scar tissue is inside the pierced hole, resecting of the skin is needed to repair the lobe to restore the tissue. Dr. Rosenberg is an experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can expertly repair partially or completely torn earlobes at his office. These procedures are generally completed as an office visit with local anesthesia. Dr. Rosenberg can evaluate the damage and recommend the best option to restore a natural appearance to the ear. In most cases, the repair can be done in less than an hour, without the need for patient sedation.

If you have elongated earlobes from years of wearing ear jewelry or a torn earlobe that needs to be repaired, contact the office of Dr. Rosenberg in NYC or Staten Island for an appointment. In many cases, torn earlobes can be repaired in one visit to our office.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
