Aging Earlobes Can Be Treated, Too!

Wrinkles can be found anywhere on the body—even your ears! Never fear, though. Droopy earlobes can be treated with the help of some popular injectables.

Earlobes, just like any area covered by skin, are susceptible to aging. Your ears can droop, wrinkle or even have thinning of the skin—just as the face and neck areas do.

By not wearing heavy earrings and avoiding excessive sun exposure, you can slow the signs of aging lobes.  However, like any part of the body, ears aren’t wrinkle-proof.

Commonly used to treat facial wrinkles, dermal fillers are now being used to treat the signs of aging in earlobes. If you don’t have wrinkly ears but your lobes are drooping as a result of wearing heavy earrings, Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse can be injected for added support. Fillers will also decrease the appearance of the earring hole.

While some patients may desire more permanent options such as otoplasty, dermal fillers in the earlobe have an immediate effect with no downtime.

At the California Institute for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, are friendly staff would be delighted to address any questions or concerns you may have about treating the signs of aging in earlobes.

To Your Health & Beauty,

Vipul R. Dev, M.D.
