Earlobe Reduction FAQ

How long will my earlobe reduction results last?
Earlobe reduction performed at John F. Burnett, MD is a permanent procedure. You can expect your new earlobes to last a lifetime, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Is there anyone who is not eligible for an earlobe reduction procedure?
Yes. Earlobe reduction surgery is not recommended for children under 5 years of age, those with severely misshapen or deformed ears, or those prone to keloid scars.

When can I begin wearing earrings again?
You should usually wait at least two weeks before wearing earrings or other jewerly on your earlobe. While downtime for an earlobe reduction is not nearly as long as many surgical procedures, attempting to wear earrings after only a week or so after the procedure may compromise your results. In some circumstances, Dr. Burnett may need to re-pierce the ear to ensure the condition of your new earlobes.


Unless you have a specific insecurity or issue, the earlobes can be an easily forgotten part of the body. Using advanced surgical techniques and an understanding of human anatomy, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Burnett can improve the shape and appearance of your earlobes.
