So over time, my pierced ear holes seem lower. I usually wear stud-type earrings so I don’t mind much, but for the wedding (in three months), I’m wearing chandelier rhinestone blingy-thingies. Real pretty. So I’m wondering if anyone has had their ears re-pierced to make the holes higher and make earrings sit higher on the lobes? I don’t know anybody who’s done this (never asked!) and I don’t want the new holes to merge or anything with the old. And I do want this to heal in time so I can remove the surgical earrings. Ladies? What do you think?

Ohh I’d love to hear opinions on this!
I’m in the same boat. When I was 18 I wore a ton of GIGANTIC chandalier earrings and my right ear is stretched and looks disgusting. I don’t like to wear dangly earrings anymore because to me, it’s an eyesore (I don’t know if anyone else can even notice). I was planning on wearing studs at the wedding because of this but would love to hear about other solutions!!

I don’t think that would be possible. I would consider wearing patches behind the earrings to hold the weight so they don’t appear like your ear lobes are stretched. Here are some things that would work: http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=152383&catid=76165

My mom peirced my ears when I was a few days old! Mexican thing! But hmm maybe you can let your holes close and then pierce some new holes?

Re: KIKI82’s suggestion of letting them close. I don’t know how long you have had your piercings but I have had mine for 7 years or so and I’m trying to close my second and third holes and I haven’t worn earrings in them in about 5 years and they still haven’t closed and healed. I think the only way you can make them go away is to get surgery. Oh and speaking of surgery, I think they can inject collagen into your ear to plump up the surrounding tissue around the hole so the holes aren’t stretched anymore.

I would think this would not be possible. Even if you were able to pierce it higher, you’re still going to be able to see the other hole.
Letting it close would probably be out of the question. I got my second holes when I was 13, and I’ve been trying to close them for about 5 years. No such luck.
I got my first holes done as an infant and I imagine they will never close.
