Earlobe Tears & Splits

Partial earlobe tears and full tears or splits can easily be repaired in the office in less than 30 minutes. The tear is cut out and stitched back together. Sometimes a laser resurfacing procedure is recommended to reduce the appearance of the scar (approximately 2 weeks after the procedure).

Others will want larger holes, caused by gauges, repaired. While more complicated, this too can be done in the office in less than 30 minutes.

These repairs are not covered by insurance in most cases.


Full & Partial Splits

Ear Rejuvenation

As we age, our earlobes deflate as they lose volume. Volume can be restored by using fillers, such as Restylane or Juvederm. These work instantly to plump up the lobe, lifting earrings that often sag, and give a youthful appearance.

Lines can appear on the earlobe, which often occurs after many years of smoking. While fillers can improve this, laser resurfacing is a more permanent solution to reduce these lines.


Keloid Removal

The removal of earlobe keloids is very difficult and in many cases this results in an even larger keloid.

Dr. Bader has removed many keloids successfully using a combination approach of injections, surgery, and topical medications. This treatment regimen is a process that takes many months to reduce the risk of recurrence.
