Heavy earrings are the usual culprit
Usually, heavy earrings over time lead to dilated or elongated earlobe holes. Occassionally a child can grab an earring and cause a rip all the way through. Techniques to repair these two types are usually similar and the fees range from $500 to $1000 each.
Earlobe repair cost
Because of the variety of different causes, earlobe repair may vary in complexity. A price range would be $500-$900 per earlobe. This will vary also depending on the region of the country you are in and the surgeon's expertise. I have some special techniques that I employ to minimize scarring and notching that can be seen if not reconstructed properly. This repair can be performed comfortably under local anesthesia to avoid any additional fees such as anesthesia fees. Earlobes can be re-pierced 6 weeks later if desired.
