Patient Info

23 years old
Dr. Inessa Fishman


This 23-year-old woman felt self-conscious about the too-long and stretched appearance of her gauged earlobes. She had an earlobe reduction and gauging repair procedure performed by Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman, carried out with the help of injected numbing medicine in the comfort of our clinic. She is shown with a great result and excellent healing 2 months after repair. Her scars will continue to soften and lose their extra pink color over the next 6+ months.

Earlobe repair most commonly addresses stretched or torn earlobe piercings. Gauged earlobes can also be fixed with earlobe surgery. The patient shown wanted to get rid of her gauges and also reduce the size and height of her earlobes, and so was treated with a customized earlobe gauging repair and earlobe reduction. We approach every patient with their treatment goals and individual anatomy in mind, and custom-tailor each procedure to each person.
