Ear piercing repair
If you have any residual scar, a good easy way to help flatten the area is gentle massage. After the skin has healed, and the sutures have been removed, you may gently massage the area with your fingers. This helps flatten out the scar a bit more quickly.
Six weeks after the areas have healed, you can have your ears re-pierced.
Best of luck.
Earlobe repairs are commonly done by dermatologists, ENT doctors, and plastic surgeons under local anesthesia in the office. Schedule a consultation with one of these physicians to discuss your options. Good luck!
