Can I repierce my ear after cyst removal?
Doctor Answers 7
I do not recommend piercing the lobule for at least 6 months after the repair. It needs to be pierced in a different location than the repair

I would wait at least 2-3 months for your ear lobe to heal about after cyst removal and to allow the tensile strength of the scar to increase. I would also revisit your surgeon who removed the cyst to evaluate the scar prior to getting it pierced again. Best of luck!

Generally, I wait 6 weeks and recomend that you avoid the incision line, staying outside of them. If your doctor does not perform this, you may mark the area and go to a trusted jewler or another doctor.
