      I’m afraid I don’t really know the answer to your question. Even Google isn’t helping me out right now.

      Some websites suggest its not that our noses and ears keep growing but that the cartilage that forms them becomes less elastic as we get older and so they become droopy!

      Other than that I can’t help I’m afraid 🙁

      I’ll keep looking for the answer and get back to you if I find out anything new.
