Earlobe Reduction - Swelling after procedure

Thank you for your question. Without examining you, individual advice cannot be offered. In general, following earlobe reduction, there is often some degree of swelling. Your surgeon may provide you with post operative instructions to minimize the extent and duration of that swelling. Much of the early swelling usually improves during the first few days following the procedure. However, some degree of swelling may persist for a few weeks. Check with your surgeon if you have concerns.
