Earlobes may have enlarged holes, or be split, as a result of heavy earrings, pulled earrings, or earlobe stretching which has become a popular new trend.
Some patients may also desire earlobe enhancement, or reduction of overly large earlobe. Treatment of these problems involves trimming of the edges of the enlarged holes, or split earlobes or removal of a wedge of excess skin, and repair with sutures. Re-piercing of the earlobe is done several weeks later.
Thin earlobes can be made fuller by the use of Juvederm, or fat injections.
