Finally . . . My Ear

My right ear piercing has been droopy for the past 5 years or so.  This past year, though, it reached the point of ridiculousness.  My earrings would just fall out, post all, through the front of my ear whenever I would bend over to pick something up.

I thought that getting it fixed would be ridiculously expensive, but I found an extremely reasonable price and set up the appointment.

The doctor, a plastic surgeon (do I sound cool when I type that?), told me that he performs loads of earlobe repairs, but mostly for people entering the military who used to wear gauges.  Interesting!!


You could see right through it.  Creepy!

Right after the procedure:

They shot me ear up with numbness, but when it wore off . . . ouch!  But only for the first day or so.

And now that I've had the stitches removed:



  1. YAY!! I am so happy about this. It looks great!! Let's go to Claire's and get it re-pierced with some star/diamond studs. That's what I had.

  2. looks GREAT! can't wait to get my own done.

  3. Yeah, I told you those gauges were a bad idea. Looks like it was probs pretty painful. Yay for earrings
