As told by others, any torn structures can always be repaired.  If you are desiring additional work while 'down there', make sure your surgeon is experienced in what you desire.

       The clitoral hood can likely be repaired after trauma from a piercing.                                                                                                                                                      Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                                                                  Los Angeles, CA

There is no doubt this can be repaired.  Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience in this surgery, for an exam and repair.

I have no doubt it can be repaired but does take a knowledge of anatomy and experience.  I suggest you include photos for evaluation.

A photo would be extremely helpful but there is a good chance it can be repaired similar to repairing a torn earlobe piercing.  I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in labiaplasty and hoodectomy.  Glad to help...
