It is often a big fear of mothers, grandparents, preschool teachers and anyone else who spends time around small children: having an earring ripped through the earlobe. The earlobe can also become torn as a result of wearing heavy earrings because over time the weight of the earring can loosen the earring hole until it rips all the way through. Earlobe repair surgery is considered to be a cosmetic procedure and is therefore not covered by insurance usually. While the cost of the procedure will vary based on the extent of a person’s tear, an earlobe repair is not generally a high-priced cosmetic surgery procedure.
