Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

Can I have my earlobe stitched again where it was lost during a surgery intended to remove a keloid?

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

While certain procedures can be attempted to improve the appearance of the scar, it is important to note that if the earlobe has been completely removed, it cannot be restored.

 

Thanks
