An increasing number of people have been requesting ear lobe fillers in order to change their fortunes. They believe that by increasing the size of their ear lobes to emulate those of Maitreya, the laughing Buddha, they will attract prosperity into their lives. Buddha’s enlarged earlobes are a symbol of wealth and good fortune.  It’s becoming popular on social media where people are posting photos of themselves getting injected with hyaluronic acid fillers which is supposed to be painless.
