Watch out! Heavy earrings could damage your earlobe
"You will be surprised to know that it is a very common problem among women who are fond of heavy earrings. Their lower earlobe splits due to the constant heavy weight of earrings," Anup Dhir, senior cosmetic surgeon, Apollo Hospital, told IANS.
"Also, another reason why women get this is they wear these earrings to bed and they constantly rub with the pillow and the ears gets pulled, causing the holes to enlarge," he added.
Common causes of lobe tear include continuously wearing heavy and pendulous earrings, hairbrush or telephone cords pulls, assault or domestic abuse or babies pulling earrings.
"We have to wear a lot of heavy jewellery during bridal or jewellery shows and mostly it is the earlobe that gets affected. So a model has to make sure she balances it out well," model Amanpreet Wahi told IANS.
