Cosmetic disfigurement of the earlobe, including laxity and sagging skin, comes with aging. Restoring the earlobe volume is a procedure indicated for patients seeking a youthful facial appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a good choice for this procedure. Most fillers on the market today are supplied with a small needle, yet a larger-gauge needle allows the introduction of the product under lower pressure, making it easier and faster to fill tight areas. This article describes a useful approach to enhance the hyaluronic acid injection, resulting in a fast and effective method to restore earlobe volume.
