EARLOBE PIERCING TEAR
Ear piercing is very popular, with about 85% of women undergoing the procedure in their lifetimes. Unfortunately, the popularity of loop-style earrings can place earring wearers at risk for traumatic tears.
Such tears often lead to the earlobe healing with a small triangular deficit and the inability to wear jewelry in the affected ear. If you suffer from this concern, treatment is available.
Cosmetic surgical repair, under local anesthetic, is a fairly straight forward procedure that can repair the deficit to the earlobe. Healing takes about one week. Once healing is complete, the freshly treated lobe may be re-pierced.
Even earlobe holes that have stretched over time can often be revised surgically.
Once the repaired earlobes have recovered and been re-pierced, patients are almost universally pleased to be able to wear their pierced earrings again. All that is left to do is to step out on the town!
