At Sanaz Harirchian, M.D., we know there are many reasons you might need your torn earlobe repaired. At times you are born with earlobes that are misshapen or asymmetrical. Your ears may have keloid scars growing on them that are causing cosmetic concerns for you. All of these genetic situations may lead you to choosing an earlobe repair surgery.
There are also times when the choices you’ve made have caused your earlobe dissatisfaction. Stretching of earlobes (also called gauging) is becoming an increasingly common fad. However, ear stretching goes a long way back. Its popularity also stretches to many continents.
Most times, a regular ear piercing is not permanent. In the event that you have a small-gauge piercing and you leave it without jewelry for a long period, it will most likely heal itself. However, a gauged ear is permanent. When the ear is stretched past a certain point, it can no longer heal itself.
If you’ve entered a new phase of your life, when you no longer want your ear to be stretched, it may be time to consider torn earlobe repair. Dr. Harirchian’s earlobe repair is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime. You will also be happy to know that there is very little scarring after your minimally invasive earlobe repair.
If you’re regretting a decision you made to stretch your earlobes, or if you want your earlobe repaired for genetic reasons, call Sanaz Harirchian, M.D. today.
