Earlobe repair – Stretched lobes
Ear lobe stretching, also known as “gauging”, has become a trendy form of body modification for both men and women. Popular with young people, this technique involves wearing plugs or “gauges” in the earlobes and gradually increasing the size of the earlobe hole until it becomes as large as a half an inch in diameter or more. But like most fashion trends, ear lobe stretching will go out of style sooner or later. Not to mention the fact that the dalliances of youth often turn ugly when you’re in your forties and everything starts to sag. Who wants ears with huge, gaping holes that swing while you walk?
A gauged hole can sometimes close up on its own, but there are various factors, including your age, your genetics, and the size of the hole that might warrant surgical reconstruction of the ear lobe. Recovery time is about the same as with other earlobe repairs.
