Stretched Ear Piercing Repair - Houston, TX

I had a very stretched ear piercing on my right...

I had a very stretched ear piercing on my right ear from wearing heavy earrings for many years. It was very obvious to the point where I could not wear stud earrings because they had a "floppy" look. After recently losing two earrings on that ear - one of them being very valuable, I decided to have it repaired. I went to Dr. Horndeski, a reputable plastic surgeon in Houston, TX. He performed the procedure which lasted about 15 minutes in total. My ear lobe was first numbed with a shot of anesthetic. There was a 5 minute wait for the anesthetic to take effect and then the procedure itself seemed to be about 10 minutes. After two stitches it was all done. I was in and out so quickly! I must say that I hate needles and I am very squeamish but looking back, it was a piece of cake and definitely worth it! I had to go back 5 days later to get my stitches removed. After my ear lobe heals, I will be able to get my ear pierced again. I can't wait!
Texas Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Horndeski is an excellent plastic surgeon. I had heard many good things about him and had even seen him showcased on one of Houston's local TV news station. He has a very good bedside manner and he listens to his patients. I had many questions before, during, and after the procedure which he took his time to answer. I never felt rushed which is something I value in doctors now-a-days. His staff was also wonderful! I was treated with the utmost professionalism and I would not ever hesitate to go back!
