Earlobe Repair

Earlobe tears and splits are extremely common and occur to hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. Earlobe damage commonly occurs to individuals who wear heavy, dangling earrings that eventually work their way down through the lobe, separating it as it goes. Another common reason is enlarged openings due to prior gauged earrings. Large hoop earrings can catch on clothing, which also results in a torn earlobe. The most common cause of earlobe damage, however, is repetitive daily use of earrings over many years.
