Gardner Plastic Surgery Offers Safe, Allergy Free Ear Piercing to Adults and Children

Gardner Plastic Surgery Offers Safe, Allergy Free Ear Piercing to Adults and Children

Cosmetic surgery generally involves invasive medical procedures, but many plastic surgery practices also offer a variety of non-invasive treatments that address signs of aging, weight gain and offer other aesthetic enhancements. Naples, Florida-based Gardner Plastic Surgery has long offered such treatments, and is now adding medical ear piercing. The specialized Blomdahl medical ear piercing treatment safely pierces ears of all ages by reducing the risk of infections, blood-born diseases and allergies. Available only through medical professionals, the Blomdahl treatment is provided by Dr. Leo Baccaro, the newest member of the Gardner Plastic Surgery team.

Why the Need for “Medical” Ear Piercing?

Ear piercing is loosely regulated with few restrictions on training and piercing devices used. Such loose regulation increases the possibility of infection or blood-borne disease, or—and more likely—exposure to contact allergies such as caused by nickel. In fact, ear piercings by studs containing nickel are believed to be the number one cause of these allergies.

Once a contact allergy sets in, most people will have it for life, and some will end up with symptoms so uncomfortable that they may not be able to wear earrings at all. Given that some parents opt for piercing their babies and toddlers, it makes sense to seek out the safest piercing option.

How is the “Blomdahl” System Different?

Businesses offering ear piercing may claim that their piercing method and initial studs are nickel free or “hypoallergenic,” although such claims can be compromised by alloys, or a disregard for the composition of the metals used in studs. The Blomdahl system guarantees the avoidance of allergy emergence by offering only studs made from medical-grade plastic or medical-grade titanium, both of which are readily accepted by the skin.

The Blomdahl ear piercing system also utilizes the modern “aseptic technique,” a sterile piercing  gun with disposable cartridges that ensures the piercing process is free of infection or blood-borne viruses. Additionally, the Blomdahl piercing studs are specifically designed to stimulate healing and easily change to regular earrings after the healing process has concluded. The studs and their backs allow for air circulation to promote healing and the stud posts create slightly larger holes that are not as prone to getting damaged when changing earrings.

Your Blomdahl Ear Piercing at Gardner Plastic Surgery

When you choose the Blomdahl ear piercing procedure at Gardner Plastic Surgery, Dr. Baccaro will discuss the procedure with you and explain the differences between medical-grade plastic and medical-grade titanium studs. You will be asked about any ailments or allergies that you might have that could compromise ear piercing. Those under the age of 16 will need written permission from their parents or legal guardians, and should be accompanied by them. Dr. Baccaro will also review the written aftercare instructions with you, which you will have to attest to the receipt of and intention to follow. After this initial consultation, the procedure can be performed in minutes and you or your child will be sporting new earrings that are free of infection and risk of allergies.

Gardner Plastic Surgery in Naples, Florida, is pleased to offer this new service to its existing adult patient base and to parents seeking safe, allergy free ear piercing for their children. If you would like to learn more about the Blomdahl system or schedule a piercing for yourself or your children contact our office today at 239.566.2611.
