Earlobe Rejuvenation

Genetics, sun damage, and aging can lead to deflated and wrinkled ear lobes.

EARLOBE REJUVENATION: TREATMENT DETAILS

Dr. Fshman restores lost volume to the earlobes with injectable fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, or fat grafting. Adding volume to deflated ears not only rejuvenates them but also supports better wear of earrings. Dr. Fishman also treats earlobes with laser and peel resurfacing concurrently with facial resurfacing.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER EARLOBE REJUVENATION?

There is little to no downtime after filler treatment of the earlobes, though the earlobes may feel tender and bruised for several days. Fat grafting to the earlobes generally results in moderate-pronounced swelling for several days to a couple of weeks after surgery, and the earlobes may feel tender and numb during this time. Resurfacing procedures, such as laser and peel resurfacing usually result in 5-7 days of peeling and redness over the earlobes.

SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS OF EARLOBE REJUVENATION

The most common side effects of earlobe filler treatment include temporary mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort of the earlobes. Resurfacing of the earlobes results in redness, swelling, and peeling for several days after treatment. Risks of earlobe rejuvenation are rare and include infection and prolonged inflammation.
