How thick should stretched lobes be?
A great question that you will need to know when starting to stretch your ears is what size should your first stretch be. For the majority of people, either 16 gauge or 14 gauge is a good starting point if you have only worn regular earrings.
Can I stretch my ears if I have small earlobes?
Yes, but depending on the size of your earlobe you might not be able to stretch your ears as large as others. Stretching your lobes thins the skin the further you stretch it, so if you have small earlobes to begin with I recommend smaller sizes.
Can you get filler in earlobes?

Your earlobes don’t have to reveal your age. They can be firm as well as show off that latest pair of hot new earrings in the most fabulous way possible.
Why are my earlobes getting thinner?
Earlobes and Aging As earlobes age, they lose elastin and collagen just as out skin does. This causes them to become thinner, wrinkled or creased. If you have pierced ears, aging is often most apparent around the piercing and can lead to difficulty wearing earrings.
