We Are Now Offering Virtual Consultations. Please Request a Consultation Online.

During this unsettling time, we wanted to reach out to our patients and reassure you of our commitment to maintaining a safe, clean environment at Noble Cosmetic Surgery because it has been our top priority. Additionally, please take note of the following:
  • As a cosmetic medicine facility, we typically do not service sick patients. Our patients elect to have procedures that are not medically necessary, so your risk of running into an ill patient is lower than that of other healthcare facilities.
  • Our surgeries and other treatments are performed in our private facilities used purely for elective treatments.
We continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and are actively following the guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) as well as our local, state and federal government agencies. Our usual guidelines include universal precautions, frequent handwashing, and frequent sanitizing of all patient areas. For the most up-to-date information, please check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website about this evolving situation, how to reduce the risk of spreading illness, travel health notices, and more.

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Currently, as the Coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person to person, we have now adopted several enhanced safety measures to decrease the risk of exposure to you and the community which include the following:
  • Please wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use the hand sanitizers provided when you enter our offices.
  • If you feel unwell or anyone in your household may have been exposed to COVID-19 through travel or attendance at large gatherings less than two weeks ago, please call us at your earliest convenience so we can reschedule you!
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, do so into the crease of your elbow and immediately wash your hands.
  • Know the symptoms of Coronavirus: tiredness, fever, weakness, shortness of breath, and diarrhea. This virus is lower respiratory focused, so you may not have upper respiratory symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat, and congestion.
  • Take these additional preventive actions to stop the spread of germs: wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
We hope each of you will stay safe & healthy as we navigate this complex situation together.

Earlobe Repair Q & A

As an area of soft, delicate skin, your earlobe is prone to rips and tears. That’s especially true if you wear earrings or have ever had earring gauges, which cause the skin to stretch and sag. An earlobe tear might also happen if you’re active in sports or other high-impact activities that leave your ears exposed. While a split earlobe might not cause you pain or severe health issues, it can heal in a way that makes the ear look disfigured. Oozing, bleeding, or redness all indicate that a torn earlobe needs medical attention.

The separated skin on the earlobe must be stitched back together. In some cases, Dr. Obasi might need to cut away parts of the ear that are sagging to ensure the lobe doesn’t droop further down. He uses a local anesthetic to numb the ear. You’ll be fully awake and conscious during the procedure but won’t feel pain. After a few days, Dr. Obasi ensures your ear has adequately healed and removes your stitches. He’ll give you instructions on cleaning and caring for your ear moving forward, which might involve applying a special cleaning solution or antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.

Your ear will need to be closely monitored after the procedure to ensure it’s not exposed to bacteria or dirt that could cause infection. Good hygiene is usually enough, but you’ll also want to:

  • Keep hair away from your earlobe
  • Wash the ear and keep it dry
  • Refrain from wearing earrings or touching the ear unnecessarily
  • Cover the area with a bandage or wound dressing

An earlobe rip shouldn’t be left untreated for very long, as you risk the ear becoming deformed or infected. This will make treating or repairing it in the long term more difficult. If you’re concerned about an earlobe issue, contact Dr. Obasi today, and he can determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for earlobe repair surgery.
