Back in my emo-goth-punk days, I was friends with a number of girls who sported giant ear plugs. I always thought they would regret it when they became grandmas who suffered from both hearing loss and actual holes in their ears. No doubt, the ear plug trend had a limited appeal, but what about those of us who have spent years wearing heavy dangling earrings? Are we all doomed to have sagging earlobes one day?
Allure and The Daily Mail report that a growing number of women are asking plastic surgeons to fix their drooping earlobes (which are, apparently, a dead giveaway of age). For those who aren’t ready to go the whole lobe-lifting route, there is the option to inject plumpers into the ears to make them look fuller and younger. We would think twice before getting any kind of work done on our ears, but to each her own.
Would you ever consider getting an ear job?
