Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur, Orthopaedic surgeon from Fortis C Doc Hospital, New Delhi. Welcome to Practo. As far as stitching of your ear holes are concerned, the average healing time is about 2 weeks. You will need to get the ears repierced after the healing process is completed. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia and stitches are removed in 10 to 14 days time.
