Hold Onto Your Earlobes: What It Takes To Close Ear Gauge Holes

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

You know those ear gauges, those giant circles that stretch earlobes into a big hole? Many of us wonder why would anyone do that?

Well, now some people who have done it are wondering the same thing!

Just about everything is getting stuck in earlobes, from precious metals to man-made materials. There are hunks of creatively craved wood to chunks of custom-cut glass, as well as stunning stones and beautiful bones. Size does matter; it seems the bigger, the better.

The holes may be hip. But once you get started, what happens when you don't want them anymore?

Earlobe repairs can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars on up to a few thousand.

FOX 29's Joyce Evans shows us in the above video report what it takes to fix those earlobes.

In addition to ear gauge repairs, Evans reports that more women are fixing stretched out and split earlobes from aging and heavy earrings.

Doctors advise you to:

  • Fix even a small tear before it gets worse;
  • Re-pierce your ears in a different spot and let the rip close;
  • Or you can inject any cosmetic filler to plump up and firm up your lobe.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
