Can you change from labret to a ring in lip piercings?

Home More advice Beauty & Style

I've had the right side of my lip pierced with a labret for a year now. I wanted to get a ring but I needed to hide the piercing for school so I got labrets (I just screw the ball off the bar). For summer I wanted to change to a ring but the piercer said I couldn't since it was pierced with a labret so the hole is straight and a ring is curved. Also a labret is further from the lip then a ring is.

Is this true? Am I doomed to never have a ring?
