Do you find that your earrings are hanging lower than they used to and that your piercing holes have turned into slits? Maybe those heavy earrings that you have been wearing have even torn your earlobe completely.
Due to the lack of structural support in your earlobe, stretching and tearing are common occurrences. The following contribute to earlobe tearing:
- Heavy, long, or even lightweight threader earrings
- Earrings being pulled or caught on something
- Congenitally short or small earlobes
- Poor piercing technique
- Sleeping in any type of earrings
Schedule your consultation with Dr. Cherup for your earlobe repair!
Ear Lobe Repair Procedure
A surgical earlobe repair is a quick and easy procedure that can be done in the operating room or in the office. The earlobe surgery involves excising/removing the inner tract of skin where the earring sits, then sewing the earlobe back together.
Stitches stay in for two weeks and then you need to wait for about one month before you get re-pierced. A re-pierce is included with the surgery.
We charge $450 for two earlobes and $250 for one earlobe. We also perform gauge-damaged earlobes. The cost depends on how deformed the earlobe has become and the difficulty of the repair.
We do not accept insurance nor will most insurance pay for earlobe repair procedures.
