Dermatologists use fillers to give people the fuller pouts they desire and to help diminish those dreaded wrinkles. But these days, more and more people are getting fillers injected into a surprising body part: the earlobe.
Yes, some women aren’t happy with the ways their earlobes look, so they’re having them plumped up. “The collagen of the ear may deteriorate to the point that the earlobe looks flabby and wrinkled,” explains Dr. Kenneth Beer. “In these patients, I inject fillers to restore a more youthful, shriveled lobe.”
Beer says this procedure is most common for women in their 40s, because their earlobes are no longer ‘young and spritely.’ But he explains that it can also be good for women who wear really heavy earrings, or those “who’ve had significant sun exposure and simply want to have less wrinkled lobes.”
If you’ve never even given your earlobes a second thought, good for you! This certainly isn’t something to start stressing about when you look in the mirror. But if your lobes make you insecure, this plumping procedure could be just the thing for you.
