Home / Plug/gauge earlobe hole repair


My son had his ears gauged about 4 years ago. they are quite large. He would now like them repaired and I need to find someone that has experience in doing this, where do I start looking?
Understanding how to do this type of reconstruction is a routine part of plastic surgery training. Make sure your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
How long after earlobe repair can I go swimming?
Usually after about 3 weeks the incisions should be healed enough to allow them to soak in water. Sometimes it can be sooner sometimes it make take a little longer.
When do the sutures come out after earlobe hole repair?
Sutures are dissolvable and are usually completely dissolved by 2 weeks.
