I was talking to my piercer and he recommended that, if i wanted to take my ears to really big sizes and they refused to stretch once they got to 2+ inches, that i should consider cartlidge removal. Does anyone have any experience in this particular area? I'm seriously considering it, and want to know everyone's personal experiences :)

The only knowledge i have of it in this context is being used to make jewelry sit differently, not increase size.
Why would lobes suddenly refuse to continue stretching? Theoretically correctly stretched lobes can be any size, as they'll keep stretching. Cartilage isn't going to effect it.

Because on of the other employees at the shop has 2.5 inch lobes that are just completely refusing to stretch anymore. Although at much smaller sizes he had blowouts scalpelled out and then his lobe sutured back together, or something like this haha. :)

Trauma may limit it for sure, or make it harder. I theory though lobes will go on stretching as long as you do it right. Might not be as fast as you'd like, but they will.
Listening to your body and patience are required though!

Oh yeah, for sure man. I'm not at the stage where I (for want of a better term) need to do it yet, but I was still curious. Thanks Oakbear!
