Ear Piercing in an Adult - Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist?
Who should I reach out to about ear piercing. I have been told my skin has a tendency to keliod (I do not have any keliod scars, but my grandfather does). None of the women on either side have had issues with their ear piercing. My parents were concerned therefore never allowed me to pierce my ears. As a 30 year old and all the advances in medicine, I wanted to reach out again. I am not sure whether to reach out to a plastic surgeon or dermerotolgist.
