- Dr. Pimple Popper shared dramatic before-and-after photos of an earlobe repair.
- Her patient's earlobes were previously gauged and had stretched out.
- Dr. Pimple Popper performs surgery to reconstruct and attach the stretched portions of the earlobes.
You're familiar with the many pops dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper , usually tackles in her practice. She does much more than pop pimples and extract lipomas, though. Dr. Pimple Popper removes moles and also reconstructs earlobes.
In fact, Dr. Pimple Popper has performed many earlobe repair surgeries over the years, and shared the procedures on Youtube for her fans. She showed off her latest earlobe repair with a very impressive set of before-and-after photos. Her Popaholic fans are in awe of her diverse skill set. One commented, "Oh my gosh you do this too?!?"
The before photos show the stretched earlobes. The pieces of skin are so thin, they dangle from the patient's ears. In the after photos, the ears are barely recognizable. Other than visible stitches, there is no sign of the previously stretched skin or holes in the earlobes. "Wow! That is really amazing Dr. Lee. Reconstructive surgical skill is such a gift. Restoration is awesome!"
So, what Dr. Pimple Popper did do to make the dramatic transformation happen? You can take a look at a previous earlobe reconstruction video to get a good idea. Essentially, she starts by cutting around the holes in the ears. She trims the inner circle away and removes it completely. Dr. Pimple Popper explains to one patient, "We have to refresh the edges."

Once she has the "fresh" wound and the inner circle trimmed away, Dr. Pimple Popper tests different ways of attaching it, so the new earlobe is as natural as possible. Then, Dr. Pimple Popper cuts through again and removes a few slices of the earlobe. (If you've ever been curious what a cross-section of an earlobe looks like, this is the procedure for you.)
Finally, she lines the strip of earlobe against the ear and adjusts for a perfect shape. She holds it together and stitches it for a seamless fit. It's good as new.
