If you’ve ever had gauges put in your earlobes, you are already aware of the fact that this permanently stretches them. Plastic surgery is required to correct this situation and there are a variety of reasons to consider having it done.

Outgrown the Image

Let’s face it, gauged earlobes may have been stylish when you were younger, but they may not work for you as an adult. Even though you no longer want to sport this image, you might be doing so because you cannot fix the problem yourself. You don’t have to be stuck with a decision you made in your youth because there are a number of surgeons who can correct this problem easily and affordable This means you can achieve a more grown-up look without the worry of being tied to your past.

Sagging Earlobes

Sagging earlobes can not only be a cosmetic problem, but can also result in health problems as well. You’re more likely to experience hearing loss whenever your earlobes are not positioned properly. You could also be more prone to getting ear infections than you were before you had your ears gauged. In some cases, it might also be more difficult to clean inside your ears whenever your earlobes sag. By having your earlobes restored to their prior state, you can eliminate many of these worries.

Increased Career Opportunities

Employers are becoming increasingly concerned with the personal appearance of their employees. As such, many are hesitant to hire applicants that have gauged earlobes. If you’ve been diligently searching for work but have been unsuccessful at obtaining employment, your earlobes could be the reason. By having them repaired, you can create a more professional-looking appearance, which will no doubt open doors for you in the way of a new and exciting career.

Repair Large Holes

The holes that are left behind when you have your ears gauged can be unsightly. They also provide bacteria with a way to enter your earlobe. Large holes might also make it difficult to wear more stylish pairs of earrings. Surgery to repair your earlobes may be the only option when it comes to closing in these holes, because the cartilage in your ears will not grow back on its own. This means that the openings will remain indefinitely unless you seek help from a qualified plastic surgeon.

Enhance your Appearance

Have you ever felt that people look at you differently because of your gauged earlobes? If so, maybe you would like to have them repaired for cosmetic reasons. After undergoing plastic surgery, others will be virtually unable to tell you once had gauged ears, which means they are less likely to judge you based upon that fact. You’ll enjoy improved self-esteem and won’t ever have to wonder what other people are thinking when you meet them for the very first time.

Deciding to have your gauged earlobes fixed is an important decision. There are many benefits to doing so, and you will be able to take advantage of these benefits now and for years to come.
