What is Earlobe Surgery?
If you have earlobes that have been torn by earrings or trauma or have been intentionally stretched through the body piercing practice known as gauging. wearing earrings could become difficult or cause you distress. The earlobe can be torn by earrings that are heavy, being yanked on by children, being caught in clothing, or more. In some cases, the tears may continue through the bottom of the earlobe, causing a split lobe. Although some earlobe tears may heal over time, they can result in unsightly scars that make it hard to re-pierce the ear or wear earrings. Fortunately, it is possible to repair earlobe piercing holes that have been stretched or split. Dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier can carefully plan and create an earlobe surgery strategy according to your current condition and appearance. Call Brickell Cosmetic Center in Miami, FL for more information.
"I’m thrilled to have found this MedSpa. No need to look elsewhere, BCC is everything that you are looking for. Thus far, I have had a hydrafacial and Botox (both for the first time). My experience was fantastic for both procedures. Dr. Dozier assisted in starting me off with the appropriate amount of Botox to achieve my beauty goals. She was very knowledgeable and took my unique skin into consideration when choosing the right plan for me. I felt comfortable and confident in her and am so happy with the results (and this is just the beginning!). I will definitely be coming back and continue to enhance my natural beauty. Thank you Dr. Dozier and staff! You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the near future."- K.R. / Google / Nov 11, 2020

"This office is great! The place itself is modern and clean. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. I came in for a laser treatment on dark spots on my face and the dermatologist who did my treatment was super sweet making me feel at ease immediately. I would highly recommend this place you will not regret it."- K.S. / Google / Oct 06, 2020
"We’ve been thinking about Botox and fillers for so long. My wife and I saved our pennies, did our research and landed in BCC. I’m so happy we did! The consultation exceeded my expectations. Dr. Dozier’s tact, professionalism and humor made the whole experience so comfortable. She answered our 27,000 questions and was incredibly thorough. The staff in the front is just as professional, humble, INSERT ALL THE POSITIVE ADJECTIVES EVER. It should be noted that you can eat off of every single surface in this office. Incredibly clean/sanitary. Two weeks after our consultation we had our plump. That on its own deserves it own review. When I thought things couldn’t get better they did. You feel like you’re in a dream (mind you they’re sticking needles in your face but i stand by what I say). They have defined what it is to "take care" of someone. My wife and I were first timers and they were so comforting. From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left it was a spa like experience. I can’t thank the staff, nurse and doctor enough. When i saw my lips I became super emotional. They looked phenomenal. It was worth every single penny. The procedure was not painful AT ALL. I don’t consider myself to have a high pain tolerance but they take EXTRA care and make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the whole procedure. Going to a dermatologist makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. If you are on the ledge about going through with this I beg you to give this place a shot. I’m a nervous rat and someway, some how they managed to make an anxiety ridden experience a relaxing one. Forever grateful. I will update my review with a before and after once I’m healed and ready to go. Oh, and did i mention you can call and text them whenever after your procedure for questions/ concerns ANYTHING. Like I said, they take care of you. Oh and my wife looks like she did when we met 7 years ago. I might even say better. Hope she doesn’t read this."- M.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2021
What Can I Expect from Earlobe Surgery?
The degree of your earlobe tear will help Dr. Dozier determine the type of repair needed. The procedure can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and is done under local anesthesia. The inner lining of the tear will be removed and then the front and back of your ear sutured to repair the tear. You should be able to return to work immediately following the procedure and can take Tylenol or Motrin for any discomfort, although it should be mild. The sutures will be removed about a week after surgery and should be sufficiently healed to withstand a new piercing after about 6 – 8 weeks. The incision should heal well and only leave a faint white line. Silicone-based scar creams are recommended during the healing process.
