Droopy earlobes? Go up a notch! Get a hole pierced higher than your original hole. Not up the side of the earlobe but directly above. Let the lower hole close as much as it will given time. This is what I dreamt up and asked for from Pagoda on myself.
Such is one of the offerings at El Cajon, California’s Pagoda Kiosk in the Westfield Parkway Shopping Mall.
Google droopy earlobes and a number of YouTube videos explore ways to deal with this issue. An issue that can arise from having an earring accidently ripped off of your pierced ear or by age.
Surgery, special earrings, even special attachments for your hanging chandeliers are already out there.
While this solution or having a higher hole may not be for everyone in theory the new, higher location for your earrings should cover your old hole once it has closed somewhat.
Yes, Virginia – earlobes do grow and elongate with age. This is why your grandpa’s ears really do look so different than the ones pictured in his youth.
Staff at kiosks like Pagoda or many others like them will confirm that ears can also be different sizes – one ear slightly bigger than the other- or grow differently.
Imagine trying to do a perfect piercing on ears that are attached at slightly varying heights. Expect quiet and big complaints. The nominal fee for insurance to achieve customer satisfaction might be suggested.
Consider taking it up a notch if droopy earlobes is an issue for you. Or consider surgery ---if you have not already emptied out the kitty fund or piggy bank on other cosmetic surgeries. Let the needles fly.
