Earlobe-related problems are: elongation of ear ring holes over time and loss of volume with age. In particular middle-aged and older women complain about these changes. Elongated or torn earlobes
Heavy ear rings can cause a deformation of the ear holes, and sometimes earlobes are torn when jewellery gets accidentally stuck. Repair surgery is carried out under local anaesthesia, and, if necessary, a new hole is pierced.
With age, earlobes loose volume and begin to shrivel. Injections of hyaluronic acid can restore the previous state.
