Over time, a pierced earlobe can become stretched if a person frequently wears large or heavy earrings. In addition to creating a long or wide opening, earrings may tear completely through the lobe. A torn earlobe may also result from trauma, such as having an earring pulled off or caught on clothing.
Dr. Dang can be repair this with a quick in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. First she removes a small amount of skin, then using sutures she meticulously repairs the earlobe. The result is a normal, rounded earlobe that matches your natural ear shape.
You will be able to return home immediately after the procedure, with only a small bandage covering the stitches. When the earlobe has healed you may re-pierce the repaired earlobe.
