I know you can go down to Mexico and get them done cheap, but I also heard that local dermatologists do it cheaper. Where and how and is it true?

Cheap Earlobe Repair?
Cheap is not always best!
I think it's most important to have a good repair. I strongly recommend you see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon - we are used to working with tissue to obtain the best result.
Best of luck,

Closing of stretched ear lobes
It is possible to get stretched ear lobes closed with surgery. There may be some dermatologists that perform this procedure, but it would more likely be done by a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon. The cost is going to vary by physician and also by the amount of work that needs to be done. If the stretching is a result of heavy earrings that have caused a slit or tear to form, then this most likely would be on the less costly side. If the stretching is a result of wearing loops in the ear, the procedure can be more involved and cost more.
