Gauges, heavy earrings, and everything in between.
If you are considering earlobe repair in Indianapolis or Carmel Indiana, Dr. Janet Turkle can help. Torn or split earlobes can occur from wearing heavy earrings, earrings catching in clothing or may just progressively stretch and tear over time. Many women and men have multiple ear piercings that they would like to have closed which can be done on the same visit or separately. Each of these is a simple in-office procedure with very little discomfort. If repairing gauge piercing sites, anesthesia and a facility fee will be needed.
