With the use of Dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane or the suturing technique Dr.Vafa is able to revolumize and restore earlobes and give them a more youthful looking appearance with long lasting results and no downtime.
It is a well recognized phenomenon that as we age, our earlobes sag and 'grow' longer. With this sagging, some earlobes get thinner and develop creases or wrinkles as well. This is almost exclusively a female problem, which is often exaggerated by the use of earring wear over the years. In those women who develop elongated earlobe holes or have actual earlobe hole tears, resulting in a split ear lobe, the ear lobes are often quite thin - even after surgical repair.
One of the more uncommon, but very beneficial uses of injectable fillers is to rejuvenate the appearance of the thinned ear lobe. Adding volume to the ear lobe through an injectable filler helps expand and stretch the ear lobe out to a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Vafa prefers the use of a hyaluronic filler, such as Juvaderm, Restylane, or Perlane, to create this tissue-expanding earlobe effect. It is quick and easy to perform and a hyaluronic filler flows in quite nicely into the small space of the earlobe. A small volume of 0.2 to 0.3ccs is all that is needed per each ear lobe. An injectable filler in the ear lobe seems to last much longer than in any other area of the face, presumably due to the lack of wear and tear of any muscle movement on the treated area. Patients can wear ear rings immediately thereafter and there is no swelling or bruising after treatment. You might call it a 'lunch time' ear lobe lift or rejuvenation!
