Gauged or Stretched Ear Lobe Repair

Gauged or Stretched Ear Lobe Repair

Around Seattle we are seeing more and more men and women who have chosen to gauge their ear lobes, and wear large inserts.

I have also been seeing an increasing number of patients who no longer wish to wear large piercings, and they choose to have these large skin defects closed surgically. 

I am able to close these large ear lobe piercings in my office using local anesthesia.   The reconstruction of a gauged ear lobe usually takes about 45 minutes.  

Pain is minimal, and sutures are removed a week later.
