Sometimes earlobes have an undesirable appearance.

What to Expect

Dr. Arlette performs earlobe reconstruction surgery on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
Incisions are a necessary part of earlobe reconstruction surgery, but care is taken to sew up incisions with tiny sutures so scarring after the procedure is minimal.

    • The procedure typically takes approximately 20 minutes per ear, depending on the amount of work that needs to be done.
    • Most patients return home as soon as the surgery is complete.
    • Dressings will be placed on the earlobes to minimize bruising and swelling and promote healing to the area.

    • Mild discomfort after the procedure is typically managed effectively with over-the-counter pain medication.
    • Scarring will be minimal and most patients will be able to wear ear jewelry again once the lobes heal.
    • Re-piercing the ear is also possible, although Dr. Arlette recommends waiting at least eight weeks after surgery to have that procedure done.
