The earlobe repair procedure in Indiana is actually very simple and can be performed as an in-office procedure in less than an hour. If you have a torn earlobe or feel very self-conscious about a damaged earlobe, consider the benefits of earlobe repair surgery.
Undergoing Earlobe Repair Surgery in Indiana
If you are ready to start wearing earrings again or just want to restore your self-confidence after an injury to the earlobes, talk to Dr. Robinson about the benefits of the earlobe repair procedure. The procedure can be performed under local anesthetic and typically takes about an hour. Dr. Robinson will use a special technique to stabilize the earlobe and remove skin around the split to create a very clean edge. He can then stitch the tissue back together to create a smooth surface and restore the shape of the earlobe.
The procedure is relatively painless and can restore the natural shape of your earlobes. Dr. Robinson will most likely place sutures into the lobe and you will come back to the office in about two weeks to have these removed.
Tips for Preventing Damage to the Earlobes
Refraining from wearing heavy earrings or large gauges (ear jewelry that stretches the earlobe) for long periods of time can prevent damage to the earlobes. It’s also a good idea to remove your earrings when exercising, when visiting the hair salon, or when performing any other type of intense activity where there is a risk that your earrings get caught in something. Be mindful about removing earrings — especially hoops or dangling earrings — when you are around children since it is very easy for them to grab or pull jewelry. We recommend parents discourage young children from wearing large or dangling earrings since these can get caught in clothing or other items during play.
