Ear lobe repair in OC
Hello Brianna, I perform earlobe repair under local anesthesia very often. There are special techniques I use to make sure the shape looks natural. I am not sure if you are talking about 1 ear lobe or both for repair. As of now consultations are complimentary so consider making an appointment. I can take a look and see how we can do our best to help you.

Although I cannot provide you with specific names, I would suggest that you start with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to find the offices of board-certified plastic surgeons in your area.
Generally speaking, the repair of the stretched or pierced ear lobes is a great procedure that can restore the ear lobe to a “normal” appearance". The resulting scar is most often very fine. Care must be taken during this procedure to avoid reducing the size of the ear and/or creating a notch/ depressed appearance in the area of the rim of the ear lobe. It is usually done under local anesthesia, with minimal discomfort and recovery time; it is associated with a very high patient satisfaction rate. I hope this, and the attached link, helps.
