I agree with my colleagues relative to sensory nerve irritation.The nerve on the side with earlobe pain is probably slight more irritated than on the opposite side, typically this improves with time. Time is your friend in this case. Make sure you let your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon know of your concerns, I am sure he / she will be happy to help you.

Slight Pain in Earlobe 4.5 Weeks Following Facelift
The #pain should be minimal and can be controlled with the prescribed medication by your surgeon. Throughout the #facelift #healing process you should be seen frequently by your doctor and one of their registered nurses to ensure you are following instructions properly and your recovery is going well. The healing process in general can take up to one month for the majority of swelling to subside, incisions to close, sutures to come out, and for bruising to completely go away.
#Recovery time from a #facelift varies from person to person, but patients can generally expect to be presentable within three weeks from surgery. Patients should expect swelling, bruising, and discoloration of the skin during this phase of recovery (swelling normally goes down after 48 hours; most bruising will go away within two weeks). The marks from a facelift can easily hidden with “camouflage” make-up which you can learn how to apply.
The scars from a facelift mature within six to twelve months from the surgery date. It is during this time that the rejuvenating effects of the facelift will become apparent and the real result will be seen. If you have certain concerns about the procedures and #healing process, it is recommended to call your board-certified surgeon or their medical staff and discuss those #concerns.

Pain 4.5 weeks in ear lobe after short scar face lift
- It is not unusual to have pain of the kind you describe.
- It should be slowly improving and should disappear within a few weeks.
- There is always one side of the face that heals faster than the other - this also is normal.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
