Have your ear lobes been stretched, torn or disfigured? This is a common occurrence resulting from wearing heavy earrings or having the earring pulled accidentally. Another cause is wearing earrings that purposefully stretch your lobe by serially increasing the gauge of the ring.
Ear lobe repair/reconstruction can usually be performed right in the office while you’re awake using local anesthesia. The recover time is usually 7-10 days and you can be wearing earrings again in 6 weeks!
If you fall into one of these categories and want your ear lobe repaired then contact the office of Dr. Enrique Hanabergh Jr., M.D. and see what he can do for you.
