The classic piercing is performed on female newborns in the earlobe.
Today the practice of piercing was extended to other parts of the body such as the eyebrows, nostrils, navel, lips, tongue and genitals among others.
After a time the orifice produced begins to epithelize and a fistula is generated.
Fistula is a connection or channel between tissues or organs.
Fistulas do not close spontaneously and when the person removes the decorative element either because they do not want to use more or because tube infection or allergic reactions there is left a depressed scar and an unsightly fistula and sometimes a raised scar or a keloid.
At the Medical Center Hoogstra we treat the scarring by piercing with Laser technology which avoids additional scars.
Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses advanced techniques in plastic surgery and repair often associated with Laser for the treatment of scarring produced by piercing.
These procedures are performed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in San Jose de Calasanz 176 at midday hours.
