Earlobe Repair FAQs
Typically, Dr. Courtney advises patients to wait 6 weeks before piercing their ears. Your body will need an adequate amount of time to heal to avoid any additional damage.
It’s better to re-pierce your ear in a slightly different spot. Because your original earring hole is now likely in scar tissue, it will not be as strong, and can tear again.
Each patient’s procedure will be unique to them, so prices will vary upon the extent of the operation. That said, Dr. Courtney provides very cost-effective earlobe repairs in Houston and will be happy to work with you on these financial aspects.
Most insurance policies will not cover this surgery, so it will be an out of pocket cost. We do not want this to deter you, and we will do everything in our power to help you as much as we can!
