Ear Lobe Repair?
Thank you for the question.
Pierced/stretched earlobes can be easily reconstructed under local anesthesia with minimal risk and recovery time. It is important to re-approximate the curved earlobe precisely to avoid step off or other visible deformity. Re-piercing is probably best delayed a few months if the new piercing site is that all close to the closed site.
