How much does ear lobe repair cost?
Earlobe repair can vary in cost depending on how many ears you need done and what kind of procedure is required (ear lobe reduction, elf ear repair, etc.). However, most patients can expect to pay between $450 and $650.
What are the risks of ear lobe repair?
The nice thing about ear repair or ear stretching surgery repair is that the risks involved with the procedure are very minimal. The main concern to be aware of is infection, but with proper aftercare, that can be prevented.
What happens during the consultation?
When you meet with a surgeon for an initial consultation, he’ll begin by assessing the current condition of your ear(s) and determine which method will be best for restoring them. This will vary based on whether you need torn earlobe repair, ear gauge surgery, or earlobe reduction. From there, he can make a recommendation on the type of procedure to achieve your desired results.
How can I prepare for ear lobe repair?
The best way to prepare for ear repair is simply to pay attention during your consultation and ask you doctor any questions you may have. Other than that, there isn’t really much you can do to physically prepare for the procedure itself.
How long does ear lobe repair recovery take?
After you have ear lobe repair done in our San Antonio office, you should have no trouble getting back to your usual activities right away. However, you will need to keep an eye on any incisions and clean them regularly as they heal to reduce infection. In most cases, your doctor will also caution you against getting your ears pierced until he gives you the green light to do so. If you desire, the re-piercing can be done in our office as well once healing is complete.
What questions should I ask my surgeon?
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Earl Ferguson, will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your procedure. For example, he can provide you with post-procedure information to ensure that your recovery and healing goes as smoothly as possible. Feel free to ask him any questions you may have during your consultation.
