Earlobe Repair in Fairfax

Earlobe repair is one of the more commonly requested procedures in America, and it’s performed for many reasons.

Why Should I Have an Earlobe Repair?

How Do I Prepare for an Earlobe Repair?

As with most cosmetic procedures, you’ll be advised to stop smoking in advance. You may have to pause the use of some medications or supplements as well, so make sure to disclose everything you’re currently taking to your surgeon.

What Should I Expect During an Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair is a straightforward outpatient procedure and typically takes less than an hour. A local anesthetic is used to ensure your comfort.

A typical earlobe repair involves removing excess skin and potentially rotating the tissue. The wound is then closed in a way to remove tension from the outer part of your incision. Only a tiny, barely visible scar is left when healing is complete.

After interviewing several physicians I decided to go with Dr. Kim. Professionalism is extremely important to me but so is the character of the physician, the attitude, and personality. He made me feel comfortable, he was confident but not arrogant. I trusted his expertise and I was not disappointed. Thank you Dr. Kim! Judy G.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kim for Asian eyelid surgery (upper eyelid blepharoplasty)!!! My results turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Kim really took the time to listen to me and what I wanted. Together, we carefully planned out where the eyelid crease would be, and it is exactly where we had planned! I also had a quick and somehow painless recovery, which I’m sure much of that can be owed to his excellent surgical technique. I feel so much more beautiful and confident after this surgery. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner in life. Thank you, Dr. Kim, for quite literally changing my life, and thank you to his wonderful staff who made this such a pleasant and efficient experience! JA
