Need some datapoints on body piercing.

Has anyone put a 16 ga piece of body jewelery in a standard ear piercing and if so, were you still able to wear regular earrings after wearing the 16 gauge for awhile? I am wanting to get some nice implant grade, internally threaded circular barbells but they only go down as small as 16 ga. The piercer assures me that having worn earrings for years I can easily go to a 16 with no real discomfort and will still be able to wear regular size earrings as well. Is he blowing smoke or can I try this without a permanent change?
