"My first breast augmentation was back in 2008 with Dr. Burnett, and it’s what made me search for him 12 years later! I was absolutely pleased with the first round, I was quite excited to have my implants exchanged. The only problem was after breastfeeding two babies, I was nervous about the choices available for a breast lift. I am not fond of scars, and after the consult, I was so relieved on the plan that fit me and my body that Dr. Burnett recommended. Dr. Burnett is professional, yet warm funny personality. I was at ease through the whole process. The staff is so helpful and is very prompt at returning phone calls. The result is amazing!! Dr. Burnett delivered exactly what I wished for. I couldn’t be happier!"- M.Z. / Google / Mar 19, 2021

HOW IS EARLOBE REDUCTION DONE?
Earlobe reduction and repair can be performed for people of many ages. Low, drooping earlobes can be caused by age, heavy jewelry, or intentional stretching. This surgery is generally performed with local anesthesia to numb the area. The technique used for earlobe reduction will depend on the cause of stretching and the earlobe tissue that is available to work with. After your procedure, it's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Burnett and his team. Following these tips will help ensure that you are able to heal well and enjoy your results.
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.
