When I was 18 I joined the band wagon of "stretching my ears" to have the bigger earrings ... Now at 30 years old I became sick of holes in my ears. I didn't want to wear big gauges anymore, I wanted pretty earrings like most women :) Procedure was quick and painless. Dr Ku is incredibly... READ MORE

When I went for my consultation I ask for an ear lobe reduction... I ask him what the cost would be and if he could do it, even showed him a picture of what i would like for them to maybe look like and he said "oh yes, that's easy... The cost will be the same as a repair" he said " if I don't... READ MORE

I'm the stereotypical pierced and tattooed lady, so yes I have those big gauges in my ears, or I did. Well my giant 100lb pup put his foot through one and caused a huge issue, with leaving town soon for summer vacation I was in a pinch! Dr lee got me in ASAP and I have beautiful ears now. I love...

After having stretched ears at an inch for over 10 years, it was time for a change no only personally but also professionally. I found Dr. Weber on this site through other glowing reviews and decided to choose him to perform the surgery. Dr. Weber along with his staff are very welcoming and... READ MORE

My main motivation to have this procedure done was to be able to wear normal earrings again. I love jewelry, and with stretched earlobes you are really limited to what earrings you can wear. For me it wasn't as bad as some other people with the same experience. Mine closed up a good amount, so I... READ MORE

My motivation behind having earlobe reduction was to have smaller earlobes. I have noticed that my earlobes exceeded the average length and I became very self-conscious. My personal feelings of my ears kept me from wearing earrings, changing hairstyles and to the point of changing position in... READ MORE

After several years of dealing with the torn earlobe, I finally decided to take care of it and get it fixed. We looked around for the best doctor and found Jacob Bloom, M.D. in Northbrook. He was incredible at getting my ear back in shape, was very attentive and patient with all the questions I... READ MORE

I had gauged earlobes when I was 14. Sure I was the coolest kid in high school. However when approaching the big "30" I started longing for earlobes again. I'd been waiting to have them fixed, along with a little push from my mother,I did it. To do the procedure I chose my favorite and... READ MORE

As a 24 year old Business Administration student who is steadily approaching graduation, I realized that my earlobes that were stretched out to a maximum of 3/4" were not going to be accepted in most professional industries. I decided to "shop around" at different plastic surgery locations in my... READ MORE

Unfortunate accident led to a torn open [personally stretched, for aesthetic] earlobe, went to Urgent Care and was put in contact with Dr. Gabbay. He was friendly and professional from the start. While at the time, not being fully experienced with the procedure of repairing a ripped lobe, he... READ MORE

When I initially got my ears pierced as a child, the left one was pierced way lower than the right one, but it went unnoticed and both my parents and I didn't think much of it. In my teen years I began wearing heavy set earrings which caused the hole to become more pronounced. Eventually, the... READ MORE
