This is another great example of what gauge earring (gauge piercing) repair surgery can look like. This patient from San Diego, CA desired to have her gauge piercings repaired to make the earlobe appear more natural looking. I performed her surgery under local anesthesia, which took about 1.5 hours altogether. She had minimal discomfort following the gauge earring correction. These photos represent her surgical results at only one week out from surgery. I provide these here mostly so prospective gauge earring repair patients can get a better appreciation of what they might look like themselves at one week.
