Ears are a sensual portion of our facial makeup. We use our ears for function and our earlobes to display earrings. Over time, heavy earrings weigh down, stretch and can even tear our earlobes. Elongated holes and torn earlobes are unsightly and restrict our ability to accessorize and wear earrings. Earlobe repair is a relatively straightforward procedure in which the torn or elongated portion is removed and the edges are placed back together. Chicago earlobe repair provider Dr. Shifrin performs this procedure in his office under local, a straight forward relatively painless procedure. Stitches are removed in 5-7 days and ears can be re pierced in as little as 6 weeks.
