Earlobe repair is an in office procedure that is performed to remove excess skin and tissue. Dr. Mack uses a local anesthetic to perform this procedure in his South Tampa practice. This procedure is needed for aesthetic purposes due to a stretched earlobe from a piercing. Through many years of wearing earrings of different size and weight, the earlobe can become stretched out. In other instances, earlobe repairs are used to treat a completely torn earlobe where a large earring may have been caught in clothing or torn out by an infant. Sutures are placed in the ears during the procedure to complete the repair of the earlobe. Patients are able to typically re-pierce their ears 6 weeks after the procedure. Upon your complimentary consultation, Dr. Mack will discuss your particular conditions, your expectations and the probable outcome of your treatment.
