Fashion, cultural traditions, and making strong statements about individuality are often at the core of choices to make permanent or semi-permanent changes to the body. Social norms regarding these practices have changed dramatically over recent years, and many things that were considered highly taboo in the past no longer have the same stigma. However, when earlobe stretching, or gauging, goes too far, earlobe repair surgery is a common request for people in Philadelphia.
Earlobe revision is performed under local anesthesia. An incision is made to remove any scar tissue or excess tissue.
The clean tissue remaining is then stitched back together. The procedure typically takes less than an hour. The recovery from earlobe surgery is generally painless and requires only basic wound care and removal of stitches at the appropriate time. Some swelling may occur during the first day or two, but earlobe revision will not necessitate lost work or other physical limitations. Patients who wish to re-pierce their ears should wait at least two months from the time of surgery.
