Is Your Favorite Jewelry Accessory Making You Look Older?
Droopy earlobes is something board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Melissa Doft says she sees all the time in her office. “In many cases, the patients are older-50s+, but sometimes they are young patients who have been wearing heavy earrings since they were teenagers and the weight of the earrings have stretched their earlobes. I think there is an increase in patients raising this concern. The increase mirrors the change in fashion from smaller earrings to statement jewelry. Moreover, there is an increase because women are starting to become aware that they may be able to fix the problem with a simple solution.”
