Holey Moley!

Do you want to repair those holes and stretched earlobes?

A brief history of gauging

Ancient practices

Stretched earlobes or gauging date back to the Egyptian Pharaoh’s and Buddha and became popular in the main stream population in the 1990’s.

Famous ears

Rock star celebrities such as Adam Lambert from American Idol; Chester Bennington lead singer of the band Lincoln Park; Brandon Boyd singer of the band Incubus all adorn gauging jewelry.

Modern problems

While this fashion trend may be something that you appreciated in your youth it may now be an embarrassment or something that may hinder your career, such as attending a job interview or applying for the armed services.

Our Solution

At Cosmetic Image Clinics we offer earlobe reconstruction, which is done by surgically revising some of the skin around the rim and hole of the enlargement and then reshaping the ear to reflect its original shape.

So...you'd like to know more?

Stretched earlobes or ear gauging is the gradual stretching of a hole in the ear lobe, using progressively larger and larger “gauges” over a period of time.

Stretching of your ear lobes can also occur from wearing heavy earring jewellery over time which can also permanently disfigure your ear lobes.

At Cosmetic Image Clinics we offer earlobe reconstruction, which is done by surgically revising some of the skin around the rim and hole of the enlargement and then reshaping the ear to reflect its original shape.
 
This surgical option involves cutting away a small section of skin and suturing the hole closed.
 
The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes per earlobe. Only a few stitches are required and these stay in for about a week. Scarring is generally minimal and gradually fades over a period of a few weeks.
Our selected team of doctors, plastic and cosmetic surgeons, clinical nurses and administrative team, have a wealth of experience caring for men and women undergoing cosmetic treatments.
