Is this procedure covered by insurance?

This is a cosmetic procedure and will not be covered by your insurance.

What can I epect for surgery and recovery?

Earlobe repair is a small enough procedure that Dr. McClellan actually performs it in our office in the procedure room. The repair generally takes about an hour under local anesthetic; and the pain is very minimal. We will see you back about 5 to 6 days after the procedure for suture removal. Three months after your repair Dr. McClellan may re-pierce your ears if you wish.
