In some patients the earrings can stretch the earlobe piercings over a period of time, resulting in a wide, slit-like opening of the piercing. In extreme cases the holes can break through causing split earlobes. In such situations, earrings often don’t hang well and look crooked.
This can be surgically remedied by closing the piercing completely, and then re-piercing six weeks later.
Typically, this is an office procedure that requires only local anesthesia.
In rare instances, the earlobes are congenitally missing or very small, which completely precludes the wearing of pierced earrings.
Recreating a small or missing earlobe can be accomplished by using some of the surrounding skin. This simple procedure can be quite rewarding for the patient.
