Stretched or Wrinkled Earlobes? There's a Solution

Have you noticed your earrings hanging lower each year? Do your earlobes appear to have folds or wrinkles? The team of experts at Medweight, Lasers & Wellness Centers in Irvine, California, can help with earlobe rejuvenation.

Earlobe rejuvenation can provide a safe and effective way to minimize wrinkles and restore skin tone to stretched-out lobes. Take a moment to learn more about earlobe rejuvenation and what it can do for you.

Why are my earlobes stretched and wrinkled?

Many of us don’t give our earlobes much thought until they change drastically in appearance. But your earlobes undergo the same aging process as the rest of your body. 

Collagen is a protein found in your skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, muscles — and earlobes. Collagen fibers help support your body structures. However, as you get older, collagen production naturally decreases. 

And with less collagen, your earlobe skin can lose tone and start to stretch and wrinkle. Furthermore, if you wear earrings, the added weight over time can make your stretched and wrinkled earlobe skin even worse.

Is there a way to rejuvenate my earlobes?

Thanks to advances in medical and aesthetic technology, it’s possible to rejuvenate your earlobes. At MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers, one of the ways we help individuals interested in nonsurgically rejuvenating the appearance of their earlobes is with dermal fillers

These gel-like substances work below the surface of your skin to smooth away wrinkles and restore skin tone. Most of our patients need only a few strategically placed injections to achieve the earlobe results they’re looking for. 

Here’s a closer look at how dermal fillers can restore your earlobes:

Volume-boosting hyaluronic acid 

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by your body to retain moisture and provide lubrication. Fillers made from hyaluronic acid work to add volume to the earlobes and fill in lines and wrinkles, giving your ears a more youthful look.

Skin-restoring collagen

Some dermal fillers work their magic by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, the proteins needed to promote new skin growth. With your collagen production revived, old skin on the earlobes can be replaced with younger, stronger skin to reduce wrinkles and minimize stretching. 

Dermal fillers are safe and effective with minor side effects, such as swelling or bruising, which typically resolve quickly. The best part? Depending on the dermal filler used, your results can last 12-18 months.

And when you notice your earlobes are starting to lose their rejuvenated appearance, simply come in for a quick and easy maintenance treatment.  

What if my earlobes are severely stretched?

If your earlobes are severely stretched or elongated, have been significantly damaged or injured, or if you don’t like their shape, reconstructive earlobe surgery is an effective solution. Surgery is also the best way to repair enlarged piercing holes.

Your provider at MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers will advise you on the best course of treatment to meet your individual needs.   

If reconstructive earlobe surgery is for you, you can expect the surgery to take about an hour. It’s performed in our Irvine office on an outpatient basis, and after your procedure, your earlobes will be swollen for about one week.
