Is an over-stretched hood piercing over-stretched forever?

I got a VCH piercing six months ago. I've tried several different pieces of jewelry trying to find something comfortable. I think the weight of steel jewelry and the inappropriateness of curved barbells for my anatomy have really stretched the piercing, which I'm not happy about. I'm now wearing a 10ga steel 5/16" straight barbell and am ordering a titanium replacement hoping it will be a lot lighter weight. Am I on the right track? Any other ideas?

Thank you!!

The skin is quite elastic and has a good blood supply so the piercing may shrink to a less stretched size over time.

You'll notice a significant difference in weight between the steel and Titanium for sure.
