Ear lobe hole repair is often sought after by individuals who have gauged or stretched ear lobes or individuals whose earlobes have been torn or ripped. The procedure itself is minimally invasive, performed under local anesthesia, and typically takes only 20 minutes to complete.
If you have an earring hole that has been stretched or torn, you may be interested in this procedure to restore the former shape of your ear lobe. As with any surgical procedure, however, you need to know exactly what to expect, before and after, so you can be as fully as prepared as possible.
These are the common aspects that our procedure can fix:
• Saggy ear lobes from heavy earrings (long term use)
• Unsightly ear lobes caused by improper piercing or infection
• Earlobe deformities
• Traumatic earlobe injury
• Expanded holes from intentional stretching / gauging and body modification
Earlobe repair procedures are growing in numbers for a variety of reasons. Whether you are looking to improve physical appearance and self-esteem due to deformity, sudden trauma or improper ear piercing techniques, we can help. We also help those that made decisions in their teenage years that are having a negative impact on acquiring a job or complying with employer standards.
Before Your Ear Lobe Hole Repair Surgery
Before your ear lobe repair surgery, you will be provided with a set of after care instructions that will help you understand exactly what will occur post-surgery. You will also be instructed on what you will need to do to prepare for the procedure.
Even though the procedure is simple and requires only 20 minutes to complete, there are important steps that need to be taken to ensure its success. You may be asked to discontinue use of certain medications, discontinue use of tobacco products, and avoid any alcoholic beverage a certain number of days before the procedure. In addition, you’ll need to be watchful of signs of illness or infection prior to the surgery. These could delay the procedure.
After Your Earlobe Repair Surgery
Local anesthesia is used during the earlobe hole repair, so while you may feel a bit of pressure, you shouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure. Immediately following your Earlobe hole repair in Orlando, ointment will be applied to the incision area and a dressing may be applied as well. Your after care instructions will inform you of when to reapply the ointment and how to change the dressing, if necessary.
Pain generally isn’t an issue with earlobe hole repair; patients usually only experience very mild discomfort. Because of that, prescription pain medication isn’t necessary. Most discomfort can be dealt with using over-the-counter pain relievers. Antibiotics, however, are generally prescribed and taken as direction to prevent any infections from developing.
After the procedure is complete, you won’t need to take any time off from work at all to recover. You can resume most normal activities immediately after. You’ll be instructed, however, on when you can shower, exercise vigorously, or wear hats after the procedure.
Sutures are removed within two weeks of the procedure, and patients may come back in to have their ear lobes re-pierced six weeks after the surgery is completed, or as soon as the scars are considered by the doctor to be soft.
While scars are generally a given with almost any type of surgery, the scars received from ear lobe hole repair surgery in Orlando are so small and inconspicuous that they won’t detract from your ears or their appearance.
