About Phoenix Dermatologist Dr. LaTowsky

Earlobe Repair

Dr. LaTowsky can repair a torn or partially torn lobe. Repaired on-site, this procedure is rather quickly with the use of a local anesthetic and stitches to repair the torn ear lobe. Depending on the nature of the tear, she can use a special flap to prevent notching or "pixie ear." After a few months of healing, the ear can be re-pierced if desired.
