Earlobe Repair for Torn Piercings, Stretching, and Gauges
Just like other areas of the face and body, the earlobes become stretched and have loss of elasticity. This may be caused by piercings, gauges, or the natural aging process. At Dr. Suzanne Yee’s Cosmetic and Laser Surgery Center, Dr. Yee helps her patients repair damage to earlobes by creating a youthful and contoured appearance.
Earlobe Repair for Torn Piercing
Many women, and men, have their ears pierced. This is something we as a society start at young age, as a rite of passage. Over the years, the piercing may become stretched from heavy earrings or loss of skin elasticity. The piercings can also completely split, causing a laceration in the lobe. Dr. Yee can repair these stretched and lacerated earlobes, and have you return for a new piercing.
Earlobe Repair for Ear Gauge Piercing
Ear gauging has been in practice in several different countries, all over the world, as part of Culture. However, in recent years ear gauging has become a popular trend of young adults. Ear gauging is a practice in which the ear is pierced and a gauge, or plug, is inserted into the hole for stretching. Over several weeks, the gauge is replaced with a larger gauge until desired appearance is met. Unfortunately, if one decides to stop the practice of gauging, the skin will not retract to it’s previous form. Many of the young people who practiced gauging want repairs to join the work force. At Dr. Suzanne Yee’s office, Dr. Yee performs Ear Gauge Repair procedures to help these individuals gain the confidence they once had.
