Why Do Your Ears Look Bigger As You Age?
Ears and noses are always lengthening due to gravity, not actual growth. As you age, gravity causes the cartilage in your ears and nose to break down and sag. This results in droopier, longer features. Studies have estimated that ears lengthen at a rate of about .22 millimeters per year.
