Fixing an Earlobe

Lots of things need fixing: that flat tire on your beach cruiser, the hole in your gutter, that chipped the tooth, those jai alai games in Tijuana. OK, maybe not that fixing!

Dr. Malamet sometimes is even called upon to fix the earlobes of his patients.

What is earlobe repair?

A patient may need an earlobe surgically repaired for a variety of reasons. The goal is to return the earlobe to a more natural shape and size or to repair a split. Just as every earlobe is unique, Dr. Malamet treats every earlobe repair as a unique situation.

The thing about the earlobes is that, while they seem as if they can be tugged upon to a great degree, things such as large gauge earrings or overly heavy earrings can do permanent damage that can only be repaired surgically. Once the skin has been stretched to a certain degree, it cannot return to its former tautness.
