I used to wear long heavy earrings for years.
I used to wear long heavy earrings for years. My right earlobe ripped and my left lobe is nearly torn, too. I want to wear my mother’s heirloom earrings to my daughter’s wedding, can you fix my lobes?
Yes, torn earlobes are a common problem. It is a relatively simple office procedure in which the scar tissue within the torn part of the earlobe is removed and the lobe is sutured together to recreate the natural curvature of the ear. Re-piercing the earlobe can be done approximately 6-8 weeks after repair. If you want to wear your mother’s earrings to the wedding, schedule your procedure at least two months before the big day.
