Repairing the large holes created by gauge earrings will take about an hour. It’s a simple in-office procedure.
I’ll inject lidocaine into in each earlobe so you won’t feel anything as I cut away the excess skin. You’ll have minimal discomfort afterward. The “after” photo of my patient on the right was taken three weeks after the repair.
For best results, I recommend you remove your gauge earrings one to two months prior to the procedure, this allows the hole to shrink a little on its own.
