This could be due to use of heavy earrings or due to ones genetics. More recently, there has been a trend of different types of piercings that stretch the ear lobe.

An earlobe repair restores a natural appearing ear lobe. The techniques vary depending on the complexity of the split and degree of ear lobe stretch. This includes excision and direct repair to specialist techniques such as rotational flaps.
