Ear piercing has been practiced across the globe to adorn the ear with earrings and ornaments. It is one of the most commonly practiced aesthetic procedures in our country, as a religious and cultural tradition too. It is practiced from the most basic goldsmiths to Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists. Doctors are many times requested to pierce a virgin ear lobule, after repair of the split ear or a post-traumatic avulsed lobule or following keloidal excision.
Also with an increasing trend of multiple earrings, cartilage piercing also become very popular. The stent used for patency of the hole created also varies from using just neem twigs to gold wire or plastic stud or the earring of choice.
The importance of proper technique and using sterile stents lies in preventing infections and other complications with this procedure. An essential prerequisite to any technique is ink marking the exact desired site of piercing making sure its symmetry.
We would like to highlight some of the simple and efficient techniques of ear-piercing that we practice in FMS Skin and Hair Clinics like gunshot piercing, railroad technique, etc. done under local or topical anesthesia according to your requirements.
