Many people wear pierced earrings. Over time, heavy earrings can stretch the hole in the earlobe. Occasionally, hoop or large earrings can get pulled and this can also cause stretching of the piercing or even a complete tear though the earlobe. In either case, the resulting earlobe may look unattractive. The lobe may no longer be able to support pierced earrings, may only support hoop earrings, or the earrings may be malpositioned. Earlobe repair corrects all of these problems in just a few minutes.
