I am looking for a surgeoun in the Portland area that can help with my problem. My ear lobes were stretched to quite a large size for years. In an unfortunate event my baby nephew ripped one in half. I had plastic surgery to have it reattached. The area has thinned out quite a bit. I do not want to have my ear closed up but just reattached with strength so be able to stretch again.
