"About a year ago I new that it was time for me to do something about my implants as I have had them in for several years and I knew that I had calcifications. I did plenty of research online Dr Kasden had so many great reviews and so I made my first appointment with him. Dr Kasden is an amazing person , along with his receptionist Sharon , he sat me down in his office and talked with me for well over an hour talking about my situation . He was so kind and informative and it was decided that due to a parathyroid that I was having removed that we should wait for surgery. I walked out of his office and gave him a hug and thanked him for his time , he had set my mind at ease. Also he didn’t charge me a penny for his time!I did have my parathyroid removed this year and went back to Dr.Kasden but I was also having some problems with my breasts . Again he sat and talked with me about my situation and explained in detail what options I had depending on the outcome of my results. ( he spent well over an hour with me again of his precious time) . I waited on results and returned to his office for the third time asking more questions. He truly is a such a kind and caring person also with a great sense of humor . With my situation I am waiting on a final test result and if all comes back good then I without a doubt have all the confidence in Dr.Kasden to perform the surgery that I will need.Thank you Dr Kasden"- J.T. / Google / Jul 25, 2019
"I am a 41yrs old black female and this is my first plastic surgery experience (performed Friday and today is Monday morning). I did my homework on the abdominoplasty procedure for months and scheduled several consultations. I'm so lucky that Dr. Kasden was my first consultation. He literally spent 2 hours with me discussing the procedure and answering my questions. He allowed me to watch a video of his work and he even drew a diagram so that I could better understand the procedure. Sharon, the office manager was just as awesome and personable and she was always available to answer my questions whenever I called. Recovery was tough at first, but Dr. Kasden and the staff at Baylor Hospital in Irving were stellar in being attentive and ensuring my comfort. Not only do I recommend Dr. Kasden for plastic surgery, but I'm already researching my next procedure (I want to transfer my own fat into my breasts). I cant see myself going to another surgeon."- S.P. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2019

Individuals of all ages are candidates for earlobe repair surgery at Scott E. Kasden M.D. However, patients who lack self-confidence due to the appearance of their torn or damaged earlobes are the most ideal candidates. Women who are unable to wear the style of earrings they desire often seek out this surgery. During a consultation with Dr. Kasden, discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns to find out if you are an ideal candidate for earlobe repair surgery.
Earlobe repair surgery is typically completed using local anesthesia, but if you are concerned about being awake during the procedure, discuss this with Dr. Kasden during your consultation. During the minor surgery, cartilage will be carefully sewn back together to repair the torn portion of the lobe or remove the overly stretched skin for a more natural appearance. In most situations, both ears are addressed during the procedure so that the results are uniform and symmetrical. If you believe that only one ear needs repair, ask Dr. Kasden what he recommends during your consultation. He will create a treatment plan that will optimize your final result.
What to Expect
When your procedure is complete, you will be released to return to your home, work, or school. Dr. Kasden or a member of our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help expedite the healing process. It is important that you do not touch or pick at your healing ears and that you return to our facility for stitch-removal approximately one-week post-surgery (or as scheduled by our team). Patients should avoid laying on their backs with their head on a pillow, and instead, sleep in a more upright position for a few days. Natural-looking earlobes can be seen almost immediately after surgery but will look even better as they heal.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does earlobe repair surgery cost?
The price of your ear procedure could vary according to whether one or both earlobes are being treated. Dr. Kasden will create a treatment plan and estimate costs after your consultation. Our practice recommends focusing on the final result (more natural-appearing earlobes) versus seeking out the cheapest surgeon. Our facility accepts several payment methods and may be able to help you attain low-interest medical financing.
How much time will I need to take off of work or school?
As this procedure is minor in nature, you will not likely need to take off time from work or school to recover at home. In fact, most patients are able to return to their daily activities the same day while being careful to protect their healing ears.
Will I have a scar?
Similar to any other surgery that requires stitches, scarring is always possible. How badly you will scar typically has more to do with your skin type and lifestyle versus the surgery itself. Our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, including how to expedite healing, and how best to avoid noticeable scarring.
When can I shower and wash my hair after surgery?
As long as you are mindful of avoiding your earlobes, it is safe to shower and wash your hair the day after surgery. During the first week of active healing, we would recommend the use of gentle soaps (such as baby shampoo) to clean your hair and body.
