Piercing Hole Removal/Closure

Times change and as we mature we can often regret piercings, you don’t have to live with it or give up on that dream job as piercing repairs are an option.

Piercing hole repairs. Or removal, whether they are in the nose, lip, eyebrow, earlobe, belly button (umbilical) or anywhere else on the body, are performed when the hole has become stretched or torn or simply when the piercing is no longer wanted and the jewellery item has been removed.

The cause may be accidental or may be related to wearing excessively heavy jewellery or may simply be related to a change of mind. Cosmetic improvement of these obvious piercing scars and holes is now available.

We offer surgical excision of the piercing hole to completely remove the and close up the holes.

Treatment

At your detail consultation, the piercing holes will be carefully examined by our Specialist doctors who will advise and explain the best method of removal, after care instruction and risks.

Procedure

Prior to the treatment : Local anaesthetic will be administered

Elliptical excision – a deep excision that removes the piercing hole more completely. The resulting wound requires stitches which can be either dissolvable or non-dissolvable depending on the site of removal. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes.

Depending on the location of the piercing, suitable and specific surgical technique may be used for example L-plasty and Y-plasty technique fir closing holes at earlobes. The doctor will advise the suitable method at the consultation.

Post Treatment

You can resume normal activities straight away in most cases and a dressing is applied to keep the wound clean for a few days. Antibiotic cream will be prescribed to apply at the wounds until the wound heals or stiches are removed. Specific post treatment instructions will be discussed with you during your visit by our Clinic Coordinator. If stitches are applied, you will be scheduled to come back for stitch removal in 1-2 weeks
