Plastic surgery trends come and go, and one that is “in” right now is elf ears — or ears that come to a point at the top rather than curving and protrude slightly from the side of the head. They shot to fame in China, and now interest is spreading around the globe.
Why Is There an Elf Ear Trend?
Not all trends have logic behind them; sometimes, people just think the look is cool. With elf ears, there is a bit of both going on. The logic is that this shape and the slight protrusion help to create a visual effect that slims the face without getting any work done or losing weight. On top of that, a lot of people just think elf ears are pretty neat.
Elf ears is undoubtedly a fun trend, and one you can embrace without surgery.
Do Elf Ears Require Permanent Alteration?
No, you can get the elf ear look with fillers instead of surgery. We’d suggest that this be your starting point. That way, if you find they aren’t the look for you, we can just dissolve the fillers.
However, if you test drive the look and love it, you can opt for surgery to permanently alter the shape of your ears. Just be sure you are happy to wear this trend for life.
What if I Have Natural Elf Ears?
You might think getting fillers for elf ears is embracing an unnatural look, but the truth is that many people are born with ears that come to a point rather than rounding. If this describes you, you’re in luck; your ears are quite trendy right now!
