Do You Even Notice Other People's Earlobes?

Do You Even Notice Other People's Earlobes?

Earlobe rejuvenation, a quick, less-than-an-hour, outpatient procedure to lift sagging ears is fast becoming a growing trend, particularly for American women in their 50s and 60s. "We make the earlobes look plumper, more rounded and smaller, giving a more youthful image," plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman told the Daily Mail.

Just like the neck and hands are known to show your age, the ears are often an area where people forget to apply sunscreen, thus speeding up the aging process. That, coupled with heavy earring wearing, has some women willing to spend £1,100 (about $1,750 USD) on the 40-minute procedure. But is that money well spent? Unless someone's ears are stretched out by earplugs or they're wearing lots of earrings, I hardly ever notice other people's earlobes at all. (And if I do, I don't think, "Wow, what a hag. She should really do something about that.") What about you?

I notice earlobes, because I was born with a double earlobe on one side.

i notice them but not as much as important things like eyebrows. @Yogaforlife, I have relatively small tunnels (2 ga) and you're kinda right... when they're out my lobes look nasty... not hanging empty tho, they kinda pucker like b-holes lol

i always notice ears. earlobes only when I'm at pretty close distance. I've noticed a lot seeing people in their early 20s at their restaurant jobs or retail not allowed to wear their plugs in their ears and it looks horrible. like thats all I can look at while I order something. some really bad ears. Kate Hudson. YIKES! http://teamsugar.com/files/images/kate-h-7.23.preview.jpg they are like Dumbo.

I notice them because I like to see who has attached earlobes, since I do and it seems that hardly anyone else does.

I never noticed earlobes until I started getting compliments on my ears (small ears/unattached lobes). Now I tend to notice everyones. I get grossed out when I see those big spacers in ears becuase I picture it without the spacer and how nasty it must be when it hangs all empty - ew!

I never notice, but I have gotten compliments on my unattached earlobes, which is weird.

I actually notice too... not in a judgmental way, really, but ears come in so many different shapes, it's interesting.

I am one of six kids and out of everyone in our family, only one of my brothers has attached earlobes. I always tell my husband how happy I am that he has good ears.I can't stand ugly ears. I'm not talking about big ears, those are cute, I mean strange shapes. I hate the little ones that are shaped like C's, look at Nicole Richie. Some more bad ear examples are Paul Simon and Kiefer Sutherland. Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder also have unattractive ears. Sorry to go on and on but ears are just about the first thing I notice on some one and they make or break the whole face for me.

this is strange, but I always notice/inspect...... in my genetics classes one of the basics we learned was about "attached" versus "unattached" earlobes being a genetic trait and I'm just super dorky and ever since have always looked :)

Yes, I notice if the earlobe is connected to your jaw/head. That's the weirdest thing ever
