Torn earlobes can be a painful and discomforting experience,. They can occur if:
- There is sudden trauma or pulling of earrings in the earlobes
- Prolonged wearing of heavy earrings
- Stretching of earlobes by circular ear-rings.
Torn earlobes require surgical repair to restore the shape and integrity of the earlobule. Your doctor will advise if your ear hole can be preserved during surgery and also no wearing of earrings during the recuperation period.
