Gauged Earlobe Repair

The art of stretching a body piercing has been around for centuries. Lately it has resurfaced in the modern western world, mostly in the form of gauging the earlobes.

It usually starts with creating an earlobe piercing and then using incrementally larger posts (gauges) to stretch the piercings. Once the piercings have been stretched to a certain diameter, jewelry can be worn in the gauged earlobes.

If an individual decides to reverse the gauged earlobe it needs reconstruction.

The repair is more complicated than the usual split earlobe repair. There is more tissue, it is inelastic and leather like and healing is less predictable. Also creating an exact border of the earlobe can be challenging.

FAQ:

Q. Does insurance cover gauged earlobe repair?
A. No.

Q. If I decide to gauge my earlobes down the road, can I still do it?
A. Yes you can. However, it is futile to go through a procedure only to reverse it. We strongly encourage you to weigh your decision about closing the gauge if you are not sure.

Q. Will my earlobes look big, since they are so stretched?
A.No, at the time of this procedure excess skin is removed to ensure a proper size of the earlobe.
