Ear lobe

Sagging earlobes you see on people wearing long heavy earrings is a cosmetic problem and many resort to surgery or often do not know what to do about it. After all, we do spend a lot on buying expensive earrings and only when you can wear them comfortably, can you enjoy the experience. Having youthful earlobes accentuates the jewelry and your looks.

If the earlobe is torn fully, you might still resort to surgery but if the earlobe is droopy due to many years of wearing long heavy earrings, then dermal filler treatment is a simple and easy approach to treating it.

Causes of sagging earlobes: With ageing, we lose volume and collagen from earlobes also just like we do from the rest of the face. Collagen which is the supporting structure under the skin is lost with ageing and few other factors like sunlight, smoking etc. The lack of support makes the lobe deflated and hangs with heavy earrings. A small dose of a dermal filler injection on the earlobe restores back its youthful shape by lifting and cushioning the earring.

Treatment: The skin is first numbed with a cream and then the earlobe is injected with a tiny bit of Hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane or Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our skin as a supporting structure. It is a molecule that combines several times its weight with water and thus plumps and holds the tissue in place. The filler is injected in the bottom part of the lobe. In 5 minutes you can have beautiful rejuvenated, lifted, younger looking earlobes without having to undergo surgery. There might be a little swelling, redness and sometimes bruising caused but these are only temporary side effects. The effect of the dermal filler will last for a year.

You can leave the clinic wearing your long earrings!
