Over time, the hole of an ear piercing can become stretched out, elongated, or completely torn. This can be a result of trauma, wearing heavy earrings, or purposely stretching your earlobes with gauges. A quick and easy outpatient procedure will return your earlobes to their desired appearance.
At Aesthetic & Dermatology Center, earlobe repair surgeries are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedures.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
During the short procedure, your ear will be numbed with a local anesthetic, rendering the procedure relatively painless. After removing the damaged portion of your earlobe, your dermatologist will join the skin on your ear together with many small sutures.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
Most individuals may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Slight bruising or swelling may occur that may be treated, usually with over-the-counter medications, as needed.
