Whether you are a victim of heavy earrings in the 80's, babies tugging on your earrings or have second thoughts about those gauges in your ears. you may be in need of earlobe repair. This is a simple, quick, painless procedure done in the office and Dr. Taylor can even re-pierce your ears during the same appointment. A local anesthetic is injected to numb the earlobe, some excess skin is excised, reapproximated and closed with sutures.
Patients who wish to have their ears re-pierced are asked to bring stainless steel earrings to their appointment. Patients are asked to keep the area clean and moist with antibiotic ointment and sutures are removed in the office in about 10 days.
