REDUCTION OF EAR HOLES
We perform reduction of ear holes that might be necessary or desired after ripping of the ear lobe or after wearing of earrings that are too heavy. We also carry out the reduction of stretched-out ear holes into so called "tunnels". The lobes can be reduced or completaly sewn up.
The surgeon uses local anaesthetization, injecting the anaesthetic directly into the ear lobe. Both ears can be treated at the same time.
It is not recommended to go swimming or to the sauna after the surgical procedure and it is appropriate to avoid greater physical strain until the stitches are pulled out.
The surgical procedure lasts 20 - 40 minutes and after the surgery the patient goes home. The treated area can be showered on the following day and after 2 weeks it is necessary to come for a check-up and to have the stitches removed.
In Esthé Laser Clinic we also sew up holes left after the removal of the belly button piercings and the ones placed above or bellow the lips. We are also able to remove the so-called (micro) dermal piercings.
surgical removal of other imperfections
We remove various imperfections ranging from pigment spots, lipomas, fibromas, cysts, fat tumours to other skin protuberances.
The procedure is performed also in the facial area and in the décolletage. The surgery is carried out in local anaesthesia, the affection is removed by the surgeon and afterwards the wound is stitched. We apply plastic skin closure systems or plastic intradermal sutures depending on the affected area.
Upon recommendation of the dermatologist the sample is submitted for histological test.
After the surgical procedure there is a tiny scar in the treated area which gets lighter after a couple of weeks.
The surgical procedure lasts approximately 20 minutes.
The wound can be showered on the next day. It is recommended to avoid greater physical strain, swimming or going to the sauna until the removal of the stitches.
Ingrown nails occur mostly on big toes of lower extremities.
In case of repeated difficulties a more radical intervention can be carried out. In this case the surgical approach is to take away the offending part of the nail plate and to remove the exuberant granulation tissue which is causing constant recurrence of this problem.
The surgical procedure lasts approximately 15 - 20 minutes. On the first day it is recommended to rest, from the second day onwards usual strain is possible.
