Earlobe Repair Near Washington DC
Earlobe repair for scarred, torn or stretched earlobes is a common procedure and can be done in the office on the same day as your initial appointment for most patients. Rarely, extensive earlobe deformities need to be best repaired in the operating room.
Heavy earrings worn over time or an earring that was pulled can lead to a torn earlobe. Repairing the tear can restore the appearance of your earlobe and allow earrings to be worn again. Fine sutures are placed at the time of the repair. It is recommended that you not wear clip-on earrings for two weeks after surgery. Repiercing can be done at 6 weeks .
