Earring Hole Adjustment Procedure Question presented by Dr. Philip Young of Bellevue | Seattle:
Question | issue: I have a hole in my right earlobe from piercing that is lower than the left. I don’t want closure but just to move the hole up higher is that possible? Stretched earlobes and thinning skin can be repaired with Earlobe Plastic Surgery. With an earlobe hole that is moved lower from stretching, the best way to repair this is by excising and then closing it following this with another piercing. Otherwise to move it upward will require some type of incising and closing. Without fully closing it, you will need to do some flaps that could be more complicated than just closing it completely. Below is a video demonstrating a earlobe repair for a earlobe that was gauged over time. The closure and movment of the ear lobe piercing would be a lot simpler than what the video will show but his is an example of how we approach working with the earlobe.
