About Earlobe Repair Surgery
Dr. Simoni is well known for the aesthetic and painless Earlobe Repair and Reduction. The procedure is done in the office, under very local anesthesia, so that the patient may remain awake, while still feeling comfortable and at ease. Dr. Simoni will administer the local anesthetic to numb your earlobes. The Doctor will then conservatively remove any portions of the ear piercing that may be scarred, before closing the area with small sutures to help minimize any scarring. Dr. Simoni takes great pride in being able to deliver some of the best torn earlobe repair Los Angeles can offer. If you later elect to have your ears pierced again, you may feel free to do so once your earlobes have healed from the surgery.
About Ear keloids
Keloids as a result of ear piercings typically appear as scars that are thick, discolored, itchy, and abnormally raised. Ear keloids can be treated with steroid injections. That being said, if the ear keloids are persistent, they can be removed altogether, to help reduce the unsightly appearance and restore the appearance of your ears.
Recovery & Healing from Ear Surgery
After the earlobe repair procedure, most patients don’t need pain medication, although Dr. Simoni will recommend an over-the-counter medication, if necessary. In most cases, the only dressing needed is a thin layer of antibiotic ointment, and stitches are usually removed in about a week. Dr. Simoni will talk to you about specific post-procedure care instructions.
