Heavy earrings are the usual culprit

+2

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.

Down my way in Alabama, it's generally $200-400 per ear for repair of a torn or stretched ear lobe piercing.  It is done in the office with local anesthesia in about 20-30 minutes/ear with no real downtime.  The exact technique is dictate by your ear shape.

Repair Cost for Enlarged But Not Completely Torn Earlobes

+1

Fees vary widely from city to city and according to what earlobe repair or earlobe reshaping is performed. 

It is unusual to not have to cut to the rim when repairing even an enlarged earlobe hole because if you only cut out the hole and repair it the earlobe tends to elongate and look unnatural.  To repair the enlarged earlobe and restore a normal shape you almost always have to cut the rim.

The fees usually range from $600 to $1,800 in New York City for most of earlobe repair and earlobe  reshaping procedures.

Partial repair of torn earlobes

+1
If the earlobes are only mildly torn, the procedure for their repair would not require cutting through the earlobe rim and would be less expensive than a full repair. This can only be evaluated during a consultation. It is important to perform the right repairso the ear does not retest and then to repierce it in an area outside the scar, which will be more fragile. The bilateral fee for this would be $1000.
