  • Piercing Repair

Your body piercings are fragile. Excessive wearing of heavy jewelry and accidental stretching and tearing can easily cause wounds in the pierced areas. Unlike normal wounds, piercing wounds do not heal by themselves. That is because perforation caused by external devices such as rings and studs prevent the edges of the pierced skin from joining together. 

Piercing wounds can only be repaired surgically. The procedure is fairly straightforward and is centered on closing the tract left by the piercing. First, your doctor will apply local anesthesia in the affected region. Then, they will remove the tract and suture back the remaining tissue together. Full recovery from the surgery usually takes a week.

More About Piercing Repair

Who is this treatment for?

Piercing removal is available to anybody who wants to remove their piercing. In fact, this procedure is arguably mandatory in piercing removal because it is the only way for pierced skin to mend. 

What are the expected results of this treatment? 

Successful piercing repair means that the wound left by piercing has been closed.

You can return to your daily life immediately following the procedure. Pain and discomfort, while minimal, can be easily managed with over-the-counter medications. In the meantime, you can also periodically apply antibiotic ointment on the incision until the sutures are ready to be removed. 

Cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists at Danny Guo MD have an impeccable track record in administering piercing repairs to all areas of the body, including the nose, lips, eyebrows, earlobes, and the belly button.
