what to expect from earlobe repair surgery?
Earlobe repair is accomplished with surgery. First, Dr. Farr will numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic and incorporate a series of specialized techniques to adjust and suture the tissue. The goal is to reconstruct the earlobes to achieve a symmetrical and natural appearance. Once the surgery is complete, patients can get back to their usual routine almost immediately without any required downtime. You can expect some mild swelling, bruising, and numbness, but this is temporary and will dissipate in the next few days after surgery.
