Earlobe repair is a simple in office procedure that can fix stretched or torn pierced ear holes. Earlobe reduction is a simple surgery to remove extra skin when earlobes have enlarged or widened with with aging. Both procedures are performed with only local anesthesia and since the earlobes are not heavily innervated, post operative pain is minimal. Ears can generally be re- pierced after a 6-8 weeks, although your doctor may recommend a longer wait.
If your piercing hole is not significantly distended but your earrings don’t lie right because of flabby or flattened earlobes, filler may be an option for you. Earlobe filler is a simple procedure where hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the earlobe to firm and plump it. This results in a better canvas for your earrings allowing them to face forward, not down.
