About the earlobe reconstruction procedure
Usually, aesthetic problems in the earlobe are caused by accessories (large and heavy earrings). Often, either as a result of wearing large earrings or due to some trauma, the earlobe ends up being either enlarged or cut.
The surgical procedure to restore the earlobe can treat this problem, and the patient thus gets rid of the created aesthetic discomfort.
In general, the procedure is addressed to women, who, following trauma or excessive wearing of massive jewelry, affect their lobe(s). It is a safe, quick intervention with natural and permanent results.
How is the earlobe reconstruction procedure performed?
The intervention is carried out by very fine suturing of the earlobe(s), in order to anatomically reconstruct the area.
The procedure is performed under anesthesia, for the patient’s comfort.
The whole operation takes about 30 minutes, during which time his doctor will take care of restoring the tissues.
After the procedure, the patient will be under medical supervision for a short time, then he will return home.
After the intervention, the area will be slightly inflamed, however, special bandages will be applied above the small incisions.
If the patient wants to keep the hole in the lobe, then it is necessary to wear a small, medicated earring throughout the recovery period.
In about 7-10 days, the threads will be removed, and the patient will come for a check-up to check the healing of the area.
It is necessary to closely follow medical recommendations.
After the intervention, the patient must have adequate hygiene in the area.
It is recommended to stay in bed and sleep on your back to avoid pressure on the ears.
It is advisable not to touch the area excessively and to avoid wearing headbands/accessories that reach the level of the lobes.

Can I still wear earrings after earlobe reconstruction?
Yes, after lobe reconstruction, the patient can wear earrings. Initially, a period of recovery is required for the area, but as it heals, the patient will be able to wear the desired jewelry. However, it is advisable to avoid heavy jewelry, which, over time, will affect the lobe.
Will I need a recovery period after the ear procedure?
Yes, after sewing the earlobe, the patient will have a small recovery period, but with mild indications, which will not affect his usual activities. Moreover, shortly after the procedure the patient can go home, and will keep in touch with the doctor to monitor the result.
Is it a painful procedure?
Given that the reconstruction involves suturing the earlobe, the intervention may seem painful, but in reality it is not. Before the procedure, the patient will be given a dose of anesthetic, which will ensure complete comfort throughout the treatment.
