San Francisco, CA, December 07, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. David Kahn, 30-year veteran and pioneer in cosmetic surgery, “rounds out” his surgical abilities with a procedure for the modern job hunter: earlobe repair. At San Francisco’s Kahn Cosmetic Center, Dr. Kahn can now take ear lobes that have been stretched or torn due to the use of large spacers/jewelry and, in one affordable outpatient procedure, surgically repair them for a clean, normal look (after healing). This should be music to the ears of young job-seekers as they attempt to enter today’s harshly competitive job market.
Not only can ear lobes be permanently stretched by large spacers or piercings, they can be torn in the process of aggressively being stretched (called “gauging”) for the next larger set of jewelry. When this happens, the pierced individual is left with dangling, bloodied tissue remnants of their ear lobes that inevitably get covered with skin but remain split apart. And split, dangling semi-earlobes could look even worse to potential employers than severely stretched earlobes.
Fortunately for the would-be employee, Dr. Kahn can rebuild one’s earlobe(s) in a relatively short (about an hour), pain-free procedure under local anesthesia. This involves removing the lobe’s epithelium (its outermost dermal layer) to get to the subcutaneous layer, then rejoining the two newly epithelized surfaces in a natural-looking way, which truly requires an artist’s touch. Hence, with over 7,000 cosmetic surgeries to his credit and the hands of an accomplished jazz pianist, which he actually is, Dr. Kahn is one of the few surgical “artists” in the Bay Area who can perform this beautifully.
“I’m very happy to now formally offer earlobe repair for most piercing-related conditions. We’ve had interest in this before, but these days, with the job market as it is, we’re getting lots more calls from people who are apparently looking to compete, looks-wise, for the few job openings available,” said Dr. Kahn of his new offering.
“Whatever your reason may be for wanting to repair your earlobes, you might as well look into it, because the procedure is quick, affordable -especially with financing- and, in our case, done by Dr. Kahn himself,” said Mohab Mohamed, the Kahn Center’s Director. “And get this, after three months, if you so choose, your earlobes are ready to be pierced again!”
Earlobe repair, like every other procedure at the Kahn Center for Cosmetic Surgery, is eligible for financing (on approved credit). It generally takes about an hour to complete the procedure under local anesthesia and takes just 6-8 weeks to heal.
Dr. David Kahn is the Kahn Center’s Master Surgeon, and in his 30+ years of experience in plastic surgery he’s performed over 7,000 procedures, ranging from rhinoplasty (nose jobs) and asian rhinoplasty (nose lifts) through necklifts, facelifts, and more. He is board certified in head, neck, and facial plastic surgery, and is licensed in the State of California. Located in downtown San Francisco, the Kahn Center for Cosmetic Surgery serves the entire Bay Area and Silicon Valley. The Center includes a state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery facility, which helps save its clients money (no out-of-office fees) and has withstood rigorous accreditation standards by the Institute for Medical Quality.
