Earlobe reconstruction is a very common procedure for women and men looking to rejuvenate their earlobes. The procedure is traditionally performed with a small wedge excision directly to the earlobe, which is carefully designed by Dr. Capuano to compliment the contour of your natural earlobes creating a more youthful earlobe.
Earlobe reconstruction also known as earlobe rejuvenation may be right for you if you have noticed that your earlobes are hanging lower than you would like and you find that they flap in the wind a bit or when you turn your head quickly.
This procedure can take anywhere from 45-90 minutes, it is performed in the office using local and oral medication to ease any amount of stress pre surgery.
The recovery post earlobe reconstruction is minimal, usually we operate on patients and they can return to regular life within 48 hours of surgery. There is some swelling that occurs, it usually lasts a few days but is controlled with NSAIDS.
