The doctor cosmetologist makes the Rejuvenating facial injections procedure for smoothing wrinkles and against flabbiness of the skin on earlobe of a beautiful, young woman in a beauty salon.
Just like other parts of the body such as the hands and face, our earlobes tend to lose volume as we age, which can present a challenge for people with pierced ears. You may notice that larger earrings are tugging on your earlobes more than in the past, or that they are causing greater discomfort. Patients with gauge piercings are especially vulnerable to earlobe stretching since the diameter of the piercing is large and affects more tissue. Acute injury is another reason many patients seek earlobe repair.
Types of Earlobe Repair
For patients with volume loss or mild stretching, dermal fillers can often provide a nonsurgical solution. Fillers help to restore the mass of the earlobe, giving more support to any earrings you wear and lifting them back to their proper placement.
If the stretching is more severe or there is acute injury, a surgical remedy is the only option. Our dermatologist will remove a small amount of skin from the earlobe, then close the tissue back up, resulting in a firmer, more supple earlobe. The scarring is minimal and patients can repierce the ear after they’ve fully recovered.
