Sometimes we have to sacrifice our “individuality”, relinquish signs of the rebelliousness of our youth or give up some “coolness” for our own good.

And just be a cog in the metaphorical wheel?

Not necessarily. But, if you want a decent job, to be taken more seriously, want to further your education or even join the military then you MUST:

Get rid of those gauges in your earlobes!

I also see a lot of people who have had gauges in their earlobes for long periods of time who now realize that it’s time to move on with their life. Gauged earlobes represent their past but now they are in a new phase of their life. They’ve grown up, are more mature and have greater responsibilities in life – and want to better themselves – physically, intellectually and financially.

The military won’t accept anyone with gauges in their earlobes or the permanent holes that persist with their removal. Dangling earlobes with large holes generally will make it difficult for you to get a higher paying, more respectable job with a brighter future.

So, if you want to improve your lot and move up in life, then you should strongly consider having your gauged earlobes fixed (closed). This is a relatively painless procedure that I perform in my office using only local anesthesia. There is no down time and you can return to virtually any job immediately.

Or, you can move on to that next and great phase of your life.

The following video is of a patient of mine (just prior to his surgery) who articulates extremely well the reasons that he decided to fix his gauged earlobes.

For more information on the plastic surgery treatment of gauged earlobes or for any other cosmetic procedure that I perform, please call my office at 480-451-3000.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

As always, our highest priority is to ensure YOUR safety and well-being.

With coronavirus/COVID-19 still a health issue, we want you to know that we are continuing to take extreme infection control measures in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. This also means that only patients will be permitted to come into our office and everyone will have their temperature checked.

In an abundance of caution, we are requesting that if you are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness, please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment. You may also want to contact your healthcare provider for further evaluation.

We do offer Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through doxy.me. This is best used for specific situations including postoperative questions and as a substitute for some postoperative office visits relating to certain procedures. However, if you are planning to proceed with surgery, an in-office evaluation will be required.

We are all in this together and really appreciate your cooperation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone or email.
