Schedule A Consultation


Gauged earlobes are intentionally stretched piercings where progressively larger plugs or tunnels are inserted over time to widen the hole in the earlobe.


Some people who have gauged earlobes may later decide to close them up and achieve a more natural look.

  • Shrinking Gauges: Removing the gauges and allowing the earlobes to heal naturally can sometimes result in some closure, but significant shrinkage may not be achievable.
  • Earlobe Repair Surgery: Earlobe repair surgery, similar to that for stretched earlobes, can be performed by a doctor or dermatologist to close the gauged holes and reconstruct the earlobe to a more natural form.


Consult a doctor or dermatologist to discuss options for closing gauged earlobes. They can assess the size and condition of the earlobes and recommend the most appropriate approach.
