Earlobe Rejuvenation Toronto
Restoring Aging Earlobes
Approximately a quarter of the ear length is comprised of the earlobe. Regardless of the overall size of the ear, the average length of the earlobe ranges from 1.5cm to 2cm. In youth, our earlobes are plump and proportionately sized. With aging, volume loss and skin laxity both impact its shape and length. As a matter of fact, medical insight into aging suggest that the only area of the ear that may display the signs of aging is the earlobe.

The earlobes are made up of connective tissue that does not have the same elasticity as the rest of the ear. For this reason, they may be more prone to the impact of aging.
Ptosis is the technical term for sagging skin and tissues, a condition that occurs as we age. Earlobe ptosis is characterized by elongated earlobes that appear stretched out. Wrinkles may also be visible. This occurs as a result of a decrease in collagen and elastin fibres and the constant downward pull of gravity. While the average length of the earlobe in younger people is about 1.8cm in length and 2cm in width, the length often increases with age and the width decreases.
