As we age our ear lobes actually become bigger and thus start to look like they are sagging. This is due to a loss in collagen and elastin in the skin as a result of the ageing process whereby the structures of our skin are not as firm as they used to be in our youth. The addition of gravity and jewellery such as clip on or pierced earrings all put an added weight pressure on the area and can stretch and elongate the lobe and also the piercing hole. In some cases jewellery no longer sits correctly on the ear as desired by the wearer.
Often forgotten about when our attention is drawn primarily to the face, ear lobes can be a dead give away to the onset of ageing and is why many women choose to wear their hair style in such a way as to not draw attention to their ears.
More and more clinics are now offering ear lobe rejuvenation or ear lobe lift procedures with the use of dermal filler products which help to restore the shape and plumpness of the lobe by pushing it outwards and give a more youthful appearance to the lobe. A small amount of filler injected into the area can also make it easier for jewellery to sit correctly on the lobe again, aiding cosmetic appearance.
