  5. Wright Jones:

    I still recommend going to a board certified plastic surgeon because there are some really key areas around the ear that need to be avoided and you don’t want to get a complication from such a simple, quick procedure, one is you can have some asymmetry of the earlobes meaning that they look different. You can also get bleeding. There are some important nerves around the ear that should be avoided and also blood vessels. Overall, it’s a fairly quick and simple procedure with low complications but that’s in the hands of a board certified plastic surgeon.
