We do not recommend wearing earrings for at least 6 months after earlobe repair surgery to help prevent a recurrence.
- The ear is likely to need re-piercing. This should not be done for at least 6 months
- Heavy earrings must be avoided permanently so that the problem does not recur
- Wear small, light, hypoallergenic earrings for the first 2 weeks
- Your ears may completely heal over and require re-piercing
