Postoperative Recovery after Earlobe Repair
The procedures are performed as same day surgery under local anesthesia in the office. The sutures are removed after one week. Vaseline is used as a dressing over the repair. No showering for 48 hours. Return to work the same day. If there are any questions during the postoperative course we encourage patients to call immediately. Follow ups are close initially and will be spaced out farther with time.
Earlobe Surgery Complications
With any surgical procedure complications can occur, but are generally low. We encourage that you ask about complications during your visit with Dr. Parikh. Dr. Parikh will ensure that your safety is first and discuss any concern in great detail that is tailored to your specific medical history.
