Can the results of gauged earrings be repaired?
Yes. If you had larger “plugs” and no longer want this look, it can be repaired with a surgery to remove the large hole and create a natural, rounded earlobe. If you wish to have gauged ears repaired, we recommend that you remove any gauges as soon as possible, before your consultation.
Can I get my ears re-pierced after repairing a torn or stretched earlobe? I want the piercing to be in the same location.
Your ears can be re-pierced in a similar location, but you must wait until the area has fully healed, generally about six weeks after earlobe repair. If your earlobes were stretched, you could consider wearing only lighter earrings to maintain the repair for a longer period.
