Q: Dr. Eppley, I have very little earlobes. Can I increase their size and shape using dermal fillers??
A: The size of your earlobe can be increased (expanded) by the use of either injectable fillers, fat injections or even a small dermal-fat graft placed from an incision on the backside of the earlobe. Which technique is better for you depends on the current size of your earlobes and the amount of earlobe skin that you have. You may feel free to send me pictures of your earlobes for a more definitive recommendation. But as a general rule, the first step to do is to use temporary injectable fillers to see of you like the change they make. If so then you may consider a more permanent solution with one of the fat grafting options.
