Ear Lobe Repair
November 22, 2017
Patients come in with a variety of ear lobe concerns. The most common concerns that I see are:
- Stretched ear lobe piercing repair
- Gauge Ear lobe repair
- Torn Ear lobe repair
- Ear lobe reduction
When treating a patient’s ear lobes, it is important to consider the symmetry, shape and individual concern. There are often ways to improve the appearance and symmetry of the ears during repair. Most repairs are able to be performed under local anesthesia. In order acheive optimal healing, sutures are placed which are removed 10 days after repair. During healing, pain is adequately abated with Tylenol alone. Patient’s are asked not to exercise while sutures are in place. Directly after closure, most patients are able to return to work (depending on profession).
If you have always wanted a change to your ear-lobes, do not hesitate to come in for a consultation to discuss your concerns and your options.
