There are a variety of reasons you may consider earlobe repair. Injury, piercings, keloid scars and genetics can all lead you to the decision to get your earlobes repaired. The results of these factors on your ears can cause a misshapen, damaged or asymmetrical appearance to your ears and facial makeup No matter the reason for your desire for earlobe repair surgery, there is a solution for you.
If your lifestyle choices such as piercings or gauging have caused you to want to repair your earlobes, Dr. Khosh has a solution for you. Piercings, multiple piercings and gauging (ear stretching) have become very popular. The ear stretching is done in small increments to minimize damage and pain. Although ear stretching may just now be more popular in the United States, it’s been around for years and stretches across many countries in the world. 10mm is considered “the point of no return” where your ear will not close back up to their regular size. A person can typically go up to a 00 gauge and shrink back down to normal.
Perhaps though, you have grown out of the desire for the particular piercing fad you once had. If this is you, you may consider torn earlobe repair. Earlobe repair is minimally invasive and requires very little downtime. You’ll be happy to know that there is also very little scarring that is related to your past ear piercings and stretchings.
If you have regrets with your past ear fads, or if you’re desiring to correct your earlobe for genetic reasons, contact Dr. Khosh today.
