Torn earlobes are the most common ear injuries. The prevalence of ear piercing has resulted in many people experiencing earrings that stretch the earlobe or are ripped through the tissue. A torn earlobe can be disfiguring and distracting, but it can also be repaired. At LM Medical NYC, we offer torn earlobe repair to reform damaged ears at our clinic on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.

The earlobe is made from soft, fatty tissue. It is different from the rest of the exterior ear that contains mostly cartilage. The earlobe is easily pierced and heals quicker than the upper portions of the outer ear. It is also prone to stretching and elongating, due to aging and other factors. Heavy earrings, dwindling collagen levels and gravity can result in stretched piercings. Over time, earrings can eventually tear through the bottom of the earlobe or be torn through due to trauma. This can leave a torn earlobe divided into two sections.

Earlobe Plastic Surgery

When an earlobe is torn into two separate pieces, plastic surgery can be performed to repair and reshape the earlobe. Torn earlobe repair is performed with local anesthetic and in our office on an outpatient basis. First, the skin needs to be removed between the two sections to allow the tissue to heal together. The sections are then stitched together, and the skin is formed around the new whole earlobe. The tissue and skin must be allowed to completely heal before the ear can be pierced again, if desired.

If you have one or both earlobes that are torn or disfigured due to ear piercings, contact LM Medical NYC for torn earlobe repair. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who offers many types of ear plastic surgery, including repairing torn earlobes. Call our clinic today in Greenwich Village to schedule an earlobe plastic surgery consultation.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
