Why Winter May Be the Perfect Time Of Year to Get Earlobe Repair
- Posted on: Dec 30 2018
If you were one of the people who hopped on the gauged ears trend then you may or may not have some regrets about it. If you are on the side of things where you are regretting having loose earlobes, then you may be wondering how on earth you will ever get them to close up. Even though over time, earlobes naturally close up, if you had large gauges, they will need a little bit more help to get them completely sealed off. Here at our office, we offer earlobe repair that combines both surgery and laser techniques to help patients, like you, get their earlobes back to normal. With winter in full swing, we believe that now is one of the best times for you to get this type of surgery. Let’s take a closer look at why.
You Won’t Be Out In the Sun
Unless you have some sort of beach vacation planned, the chances are that you won’t be spending a lot of time out in the sun during the winter. After a surgery like this, we encourage patients to stay out of the sun because it may darken the skin where the incisions are which will make it look more visible. By keeping your earlobes out of the sun, you will give them plenty of time to heal.
You Can Cover them Up
If you are worried about people seeing your earlobes as they heal, the good news is that it’s cold weather so you can cover them up. One thing we do recommend, however, is not applying too much pressure to the ears so that they can heal properly. We will go over all of your recovery tips more in-person during your initial consultation.
As you can see, there are a variety of benefits to getting an earlobe repair surgery done in the winter. If you want to learn more about this type of surgery, contact our Chelmsford office today and give us a call at (978) 453-5559.
