I had my ears pierced for about 4 months. Then I got to big of earrings and it made my ear sag a little. I took them out for about 2 months and I want to re pierce them. As of right now no earrings will go through the hole.
My Earring Ripped my Earlobe a Little but Not All the Way Through. Will I Ever Be Able to Repierce It?

Ear Piercing Closed
It looks like the piercing closed when you stopped wearing earrings. It should be simple to fix. You could have your ears re-pierced in the same location or through a different one depending on your preference. Good luck.

Ear lobe piercing has closed
This should not be difficult to do. The ear needs to be repierced again. Maybe you should try a new location if this site was stretched.
Re-piercing of the ear lobe
The hole will close down over time and you simply need to have it repierced. This should not be a difficult procedure.

Earlobe Piercings & Repair
Earlobes have skin on the front and back with lobe filled with fibrofatty tissue ( fat interlaced with fibrous strands). In my experience, sweaters, young children pulling at dangling earrings and sleeping with your earrings in are some of the most common causes of inadvertent tearing of the pierced hole.
- In your case, I would start with simple re-piercing of the hole.
- If a torn earlobe needs surgical repair, I tell my patients that I will re-pierce a hole adjacent to my repair, but not within the incision. Surgical scars do not have the same strength as undamaged tissue, so the repaired hole will re-injure more easily than a new piercing.
Ear Lobe Piercing?
Thank you for the question and picture.
If you like the current location of your piercing you should be able to have it re-pierced now with minimal effort or expense.
