Heavy, dangling earrings can stretch and even tear an ear lobe over time. In some cases, traumatic pulling on the earring can cause a tear. We can repair your ear lobe for you and, with the exception of a tiny scar, return it to its normal appearance. You will also safely be able to re-pierce your ears after the repair has fully healed.
Causes of Earlobe Repair:
You may require earlobe repair if your piercing site has stretched too much, or if it has torn.
Symptoms of Earlobe Repair:
The site of your piercing has stretched and is aesthetically unappealing or the site is bleeding and irritated.
Dr. Davis repairs your ear lobe using local anesthesia in our office. The procedure typically lasts about 20 minutes and there is no down time. Following the repair, discomfort is minimal and stitches are removed a week later at a follow up visit in our office.
