Earlobe repair restores your earlobes to their natural shape after experiencing sagging and stretching as a result of aging, prolonged earring wear, and gauging. This procedure also repairs a torn earlobe that may have occurred from trauma or snagging. To reshape your earlobe, a small notch is created in your earlobe then is meticulously positioned and stitched back into its natural shape.
When the procedure is finished, you will notice an immediate change in shape. Recovery time is approximately one week, with full recovery taking several weeks. After complete recovery, you will be able to pierce your ears and wear earrings again, and your incision will fade over time. Dr. Atchison will walk you through the procedure, as well as give you all the details you need for you to determine if this procedure is right for you.
