Did you know that Ear piercing is not just for enhancing our looks,
but has its origins in science? Ear piercing at an early age is linked to better brain development as the meridian point that connects the
right hemisphere of the brain to the left one, is in the ear lobes. Piercing this point helps activate these parts of the brain.

Pain or discomfort during and after ear piercing is a very subjective experience and varies from person to person. It is also highly dependent on the type of ear piercing method used, and of course,
the person doing it. Though most salons offer the service nowadays, there is nothing better than approaching an ENT specialist or
Ear surgeon for a more professional and safe experience.

Also, post-piercing care and followup is something you would get only from a practicing ENT doctor.

Dr. Shree Rao’s calming talk and friendly approach is an added bonus, especially in babies and children, to reduce anxiety.

What’s more, by using a hand-pressured instrument and sterile, pre-sealed hypoallergenic piercing earrings, Dr. Shree Rao assures a safe and gentle ear piercing every time.


Any age after 4 months is ideal for ear piercing, says Dr. Shree Rao, Ear Surgeon. This is to ensure that the baby has recovered from any fever or rash after the DPT vaccination which is usually scheduled at 14 weeks of age.

In the initial three days, the piercing site may feel tender to the touch and mild bruising or swelling can be there. These are not signs of an infection or allergic reaction. So children, parents and adults should stay calm, and not panic, says Dr. Shree Rao, Ear Surgeon.
