How to prepare for an Earlobe Lift
Aging signs can appear almost anywhere on the body. They are often seen in eyes, lips, hands, and also ears. Nowadays, more and more people are resorting to cosmetic surgery to improve the look of their aged ears. Since ears so soft and pliable, they are very prone to the effects of gravity. Dr. Berman offers the earlobe lift at his practice for men and women who want to tighten up sagging, droopy earlobes.
The earlobe lift is a simple procedure that helps to repair and reshape elongated earlobes. This is a popular surgical procedure for patients who are in their 60’s. Although, some patients may opt for this when they are younger if their earlobes have become damaged.
When you come into Berman Plastic Surgery, Dr. Berman will talk with you during a consultation about your concerns and goals. If you have multiple aging concerns, this surgical can be done in combination with other procedures as well.
When you are ready for the surgery, your skin and earlobes will be prepped. Local anesthesia may be used as well to manage any discomfort.

The surgery is started by making an incision in the earlobe. The incisions are made in inconspicuous locations to hide any scarring. During the surgery, Dr. Berman will remove a small, wedge-shaped amount of tissue from the earlobe. In addition to this, dermal fillers are used to help restore any volume loss in the earlobe.
Once your procedure is done, you can return to work and normal activities. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness but this will subside within a few days. For quick healing, it is encouraged to avoid strenuous activity for the first week or two after the surgery. During the first week, you should keep the area clean and apply antibiotic cream as directed by Dr. Berman.
