A common ear problem that is seen among men and women who have ear piercings is a stretched or completely torn earring hole or earlobe.
Stretched or Torn Earlobes
Stretched, almost torn, or even completely torn earlobes can appear unattractive and draw attention away from your other features. It has become very popular for some people to intentionally stretch their earlobes as a fashion statement, by wearing heavy earrings that create large, gaping holes in the earlobes, causing them to hang languidly. For others, stretched earlobes can be a result of an accident, or due to years of wearing heavy earrings.
Earlobe repair can be performed as a simple in-office procedure. Stretched or torn earlobe repair can help to either preserve or close a part of the original ear piercing. There is essentially no downtime after stretched or torn earlobe repair. Patients are frequently amazed at how much a torn earlobe repair can improve the appearance of their faces and restore attention to their attractive features.
