Ear Surgery

Ear surgery at the Chesapeake Center for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery includes set-back for prominent ears, removal of keloids from earlobes, closure of gauged holes and repair of split earlobes from earring tears.

Prominent ears/otoplasty

Children and adults alike who suffer the embarrassment of prominent ears can see a remarkable difference when the ears are set back closer to the head. Dr. Grenga may reshape the soft skeleton of the ear to create a more natural, balanced look for those who suffer from this congenital disturbance of ear growth. Ladies with split earlobes can once again wear their favorite earrings once the torn part is repaired at Dr. Grenga's office.

One or both ears can be repaired during your lunch hour... back to work in under an hour. If you suffer from a keloid scar where your ear has been pierced, let Dr. Grenga show you what can be done to remove this bothersome lump and restore, where possible, your ability to wear earrings again.


Ear set-back surgery is also called otoplasty. This procedure is performed to reshape the ears. This young man's before and after ear set-back is shown in these photos.


This young lady has had her ear reshaping procedure under local anesthetic. Notice how more balanced the shape of the ears are after her otoplasty procedure.


Not all ears develop evenly. Some degree of asymmetry exists in many individual's ears and often these differences persist into adulthood. Ear setback surgery can even out the positions of the prominent ears.


Gauged hole closure

Gauged ears or split earlobes? Repair of split earlobes and closure of gauged ears are typical problems handled by our office. Usually, repair of both earlobes takes about 45 minutes and can be  performed with a local anesthetic- it doesn't have to hurt at all during the procedure! Even better, you can return to your normal schedule the same day. The cost varies by the complexity and the amount of time required to accomplish repair of the earlobe deformity. For split earlobes, the cost is from $475 to 600. For more complex repairs such as those required for closing stretched out gauge holes, the procedure is more complex and takes longer. The cost ranges from $750 to $1050.

Perhaps you'd like to be able to wear those very special earrings once again. Or, your desire to join the military is put on hold because of gauged holes in your earlobes. Whatever the reason, we're got plenty of experience to help keep you looking your best.
