Preparing for Earlobe Reduction Surgery

Understanding the value of adequately preparing for your surgery and recovery is essential. Though this is a relatively minor procedure, Dr. Meade may ask several things from you. 

These can include the following:

  • To undergo further medical evaluations and laboratory tests.
  • Adjust or cease taking medication and dietary supplements.
  • To refrain from smoking or the consumption of alcohol or drugs.
  • Ensure you are well-hydrated, especially on the days leading up to your procedure. 

The Earlobe Reduction Procedure

There are numerous ways of reducing large earlobes, including removing a pie-shaped wedge of tissue or recontouring the entire lobe. Regardless of the method, the surgery is usually simple and comparatively quick, performed in the office under local anesthesia. The planned shape of the earlobe is first marked as a guide, and excess skin and possibly cartilage are removed.

Some people intentionally stretch their earlobes to achieve a specific look or fashion. These stretched earlobes can be repaired if the stretching has been so severe that the hole will never close.

Recovery and Results

After an earlobe surgery, it’s best to rest in a chair or recliner with your head elevated to minimize post-surgical swelling. If you want to sleep in bed, use as many pillows as possible. For the first 48 hours, please avoid any physical strain or elevation of your heart rate.

Once healed, your earlobes should reflect the vision you had for them. If they need to be re-pierced or adjusted further, these are all things to discuss with Dr. Meade. However, in most cases, the patient is delighted with the life-long results.

If you are ready to have your earlobes adjusted by Dr. Meade, please get in touch with our professional and compassionate team today. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have, and when you’re ready, book your initial consultation with Dr. Meade. Call 214.823.1691 today!
