Anti-Aging for Your Ears?

Our earlobes loses volume with age. This also means our ear piercings may look stretched and elongated, and our earrings may not sit as well on our earlobes. Though our ears rarely receive much attention, just like any other part of the body, lobes can become elongated, saggy and thin as collagen and natural elasticity decreases, causing visible wrinkling on the surface.

Many women have their hair cut shorter as they get older, and they can be aghast to discover that sagging earlobes are indeed a tell-tale sign of their true age, which cannot be disguised by the usual arsenal of anti aging heavyweights and make-up — especially if years spent wearing heavy earrings have pulled them southwards. 

It may sound like the daftest cosmetic procedure yet. But more and more women are having fillers to perk up lobes left sagging by heavy earrings. 

Before Fillers - Earlobes look deflated and saggy.

Injecting hyaluronic acid filler into the deflated lobe and surrounding wrinkles, however, can both plump the ear lobes up and iron them out. The ear lobe is injected with filler in several areas and inflates, looking ten times better immediately. The filler draws fluid into it, which causes further inflation, and makes the tissue appear softer and more hydrated.

After fillers - Ear lobes look plump!

From a face reading perspective, the ancient chinese believe that our ears symbolize the famous Yellow River (‘Huang he’) in China. When they are well formed and proportionate, they indicate good fortune and wisdom. Historically, the Chinese, majority of whom are Buddhists, have a preference for long, fleshy earlobes, as this kind of ears remind them of Buddha and represent fortune and luck.

Fillers done on earlobes reverse the age related changes associated with thinning earlobes. It also helps earrings look and sit better.
