There’s a reason ear piercing is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the world. It allows everyone the opportunity to express themselves creatively and feel confident in their style.

While ear piercing is a cosmetic treatment, it still comes with risks. One of the most common is progressive damage to the ear. Lobe piercings can weaken the structure of your earlobe and even lead to splitting or tearing.

That’s why Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics offers expert ear piercing and earlobe repair in Zachary. Our providers use medical-grade supplies and decades of expertise to provide the quality piercing experience you deserve and repair any damage your ears may have sustained over the course of your life. For piercings and earlobe repair in Zachary, there’s simply no practice better than Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics.

WHAT TO EXPECT The Earlobe Repair & Piercing Process

Earlobe Repair & Piercing


Before scheduling your ear piercing or lobe repair in Zachary at Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics, we will first have you come in for an in-depth consultation. During this consultation, we’ll get to know you, your piercing preferences, and your desired results. Once you’ve had your consultation, we can often pierce your ears on the same day.


Earlobe Repair or Piercing

Repair and piercing are performed by a trained, licensed provider at Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics. For earlobe repair, your physician will clean and anesthetize the area, remove the extra skin, rotate the ear tissue if necessary, then close the wound. Earlobe repair can also be completed using a chemical repair, if the piercing hole is just enlarged and not completely torn.


Next Steps

Follow any post-operative or post-piercing instructions that your provider supplies you with. Slight swelling and tenderness are normal but should disappear within a couple of days to a week. For earlobe repair, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to removes your sutures or to complete the next chemical repair session.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are multiple ways that we can damage our earlobes:

  • Wearing heavy earrings for long periods, when using your phone, or at the hair salon.
  • Tugging on your earrings by a baby/small child.
  • Clothing catching your earrings.

Sutures placed during the procedure are removed in our clinic after roughly 7-9 days. Most patients can have their ears re-pierced 6 -8 weeks after treatment, though some patients may need to wait longer.

The entire procedure on one earlobe takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Generally, a strong topical anesthetic cream is placed on the earlobe prior to the injection of the local anesthetic.

There are limited risks to earlobe repair in Zachary, but the most common complication from treatment is fine scarring. Our team can recommend the best care to try to avoid this and can treat scarring with injection and lasers, if needed.
