So many women and men as well suffer from torn earlobes for a variety of reasons. Some have worn earrings that were too heavy and that caused the earlobe to tear after longterm use. Sometimes a child can grab mommy’s or daddy’s hoop earring and cause a tear. Whatever your unique story, Dr. Garries can surgically repair your slit or completely torn earlobe, and she can pierce your ear during the same procedure. Most repairs take 45 minutes, and you can walk out wearing your favorite pair of pearl or diamond earrings!
