Perhaps the most anatomically complex element of the entire face, ears have both an important functional and aesthetic purpose.
Dr. Cabin’s approach to aesthetic ear surgery pulls from his deep experience in complex ear reconstruction and replacement. His goal is lasting, subtle and natural results for patients interested in changing or rejuvenating ears.
Using surgical precision, sterile technique and local anesthetic, Dr. Cabin performs adult skin and cartilage ear-piercing in the office. After a full consultation, assessment and discussion, Dr. Cabin will review the piercing plan before proceeding.
Previous ear piercings can eventually become stretched, enlarged or even torn. Dr. Cabin performs quick and painless, micro-surgical repair of these abnormalities. In some cases, the piercing can be repaired to smaller size. Other times it is more appropriate to close a piercing, let it heal and re-pierce 6-12 weeks later. After his assessment, Dr. Cabin will review the options and provide a customized treatment plan for any piercing abnormality.
Dr. Cabin is an expert in the repair of previously stretched or gauged ear lobes. Using local anesthesia and hidden incisions, Dr. Cabin can rearrange the previously elongated skin to re-create a normal and natural-looking ear lobe. Once recreated, and if desired, patients can proceed to get normal, lobe piercings 6-12 weeks later, depending on their specific case.
