Have you noticed that your earlobes aren’t shaped quite as nicely as they once were? Have years of wearing heavy earrings caused them to sag? As many people age, they become concerned with rejuvenating and restoring the youthful appearance of their face, and oftentimes forget about other important areas such as the neck, hands, chest, and ear lobes! Sagging earlobes and stretched out piercings can actually be improved with dermal filler injections. The expert injectors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego can tailor an injectable treatment plan specifically to your needs to firm up and reshape the ears.

Fillers for Earlobes
Gravity, volume loss, and the weight of earrings eventually take a toll on our ears, causing the earlobes to sag and ear piercings to become large and stretched out. People who have stretched their earlobes and wanted them corrected or have an adverse reaction to ear piercing may also find themselves wanting to restore the natural appearance of their ears.
There are surgical procedures that can repair this damage, but many prefer the results of non-invasive dermal fillers performed by a board-certified dermatologist. Here at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, our team of dermatologists is comprised of expert injectors who can restore a youthful plumpness to your earlobes. Depending on the individual, the doctor may choose to use one of the following fillers for earlobe rejuvenation:
Dermal filler is injected into the earlobe with a fine needle to add volume to the lobe, smooth out lines and creases, and minimize the appearance of large piercings. While the injections are generally pain-free, the doctor can apply a topical anesthetic to the lobe prior to injection to minimize discomfort. You may experience some redness, swelling, and/or bruising after injection, but this shouldn’t last more than a couple of days.
Earlobe rejuvenation results can actually last up to one year or longer in some cases and earrings can be worn like normal after treatment. Dermal filler results last longer in the earlobes because there is no dynamic muscle movement like in the face. Once results do begin to diminish, the earlobe rejuvenation procedure can be performed again.
Earlobe Rejuvenation Frequently Asked Questions
The board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are frequently asked questions about earlobe rejuvenation and have compiled the answers to some of the most common ones for you to reference here. Contact our office if you have any more questions.
Q: How many dermal filler treatments will I need?
A: Most patients only need one treatment session for earlobe rejuvenation; however, a second session may provide optimal results. The results are temporary, lasting from a year to 18 months, but the treatment can be repeated when signs return.
Q: Who should perform earlobe rejuvenation?
A: Any type of cosmetic injection should only be performed by an expert injector. Expert injectors are physicians who have undergone extensive training in performing injectable procedures, like those here at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego. Our dermatologists have had years of training and experience performing dermal filler injections for total facial rejuvenation.
Q: Are dermal filler injections in the earlobe safe?
A: Dermal filler injections are very safe when injected by an expert physician with a track record of success. All of our doctors here at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology have been performing injectable treatments for years and some have even been involved in the development of some of the most popular injectable medications.
Q: Can I wear earrings after getting filler in my earlobe?
A: After the treatment, patients are able to wear earrings normally and the results of ear rejuvenation can last up to one year. When patients start to notice the results wearing off in their ears, they can come in for a subsequent filler treatment.
Q: Can I get Botox at the same time as dermal fillers?
A: Yes! Many patients looking for complete rejuvenation have a combination of treatments performed together. For instance, you can have earlobe rejuvenation with dermal fillers at the same time as Botox to minimize your frown lines in one treatment session. Discuss your rejuvenation needs with the doctor during your consultation so that they can create a treatment plan just for you.
