There are some decisions that you made in your teens and late twenties that when looking back on, may not have been the smartest but they don’t impact you. However, there are other things— like getting gauged ears— that can leave you feeling like your decision-making skills were less than up to par. If you have gaping holes in your ears from gauged ears that you would like to get rid of, consider getting earlobe repair surgery from Skin & Laser Surgery Center. Read on to learn more.
How Is the Surgery Performed?
By using a local anesthetic, your earlobes will be numb during the entire procedure. Once numbed, one of the doctors at Skin & Laser Surgery Center will determine what type of treatment is needed. Depending on the size of the hole, it may only need to be stitched up, but if you have any tearing involved, then your earlobe may have to be restructured. Once your earlobe is either stitched up or restructured, you will have earlobes that will make you not regret your initial decision so much.
What Is Healing Like?
You won’t be able to go out and get your ears pierced right after having surgery. In fact, you will have to wait for at least a couple of months before you even consider getting your ears pierced. As your ears heal, the cartilage will form together to make your ears look like their pre-gauged selves.
Getting your ears gauged when you were in high school or college may have seemed like a decision you weren’t going to regret at the time. However, now that you are an adult with an adult job, your gauged ears may be something you’re more self-conscious of than proud. Luckily, with the help of the doctors at Skin & Laser Surgery Center, you can get your earlobes fixed in no time.
