Watch out! Heavy earrings could damage your earlobe
"Like if she is wearing heavy earrings for a show, she should avoid wearing them at parties or gettogethers; otherwise there are chances of an earlobe split."
This is where earlobe surgery - or lobuplasty - comes in.
On an average, cosmetic surgeons get 7-10 queries related to earlobe surgery in a month. Dhir says in most cases a person has a split or a tear only in one ear because of unconsciously fiddling with it.
Priyanka Varma, 22, a media professional, has completely stopped wearing earrings thanks to her passion for heavy earrings.
"When I joined college, I started wearing heavy earrings every day. I used to love it, but within a year, I saw my left earlobe getting bigger and elongated compared to the right one. So I stopped wearing earrings now for fear of tearing it completely," she said.
