"My surgery (breast reduction) was 1 year ago today and it was one of the best decisions of my life! From my very first consultation appointment, Dr. Plamondon & her staff were so supportive, friendly, professional, informative and caring and I felt so confident about my decision to be there. At every appointment (pre-op, post-op, surgery itself), I was always made to feel I could ask any questions and reach out to them with any concerns (staff never "rushes" you off the phone!) Highly recommend"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 07, 2018

"I am super happy with my results. I"m 45 yrs old, with two teenagers, and am now three months post-surgery with a breast lift and augmentation. Dr. Plamondon and her staff were absolutly caring and wonderful. She gave me lots of time to discuss my options, trying on sizers to find size I felt most comfortable with, and I never felt rushed. she gave me a beautiful new body that I"m so proud of. I highly recommend her. Thank you Dr.!"- R.G. / Google / Nov 26, 2018
"Including myself i have sent over 10 friends and even two family members to this great doctor. She is very caring and is great at what she does. Dr. Plamondon should be called Dr.Natural because this is how she makes me look and feel after my breast augmentation. Look no more is my advice! I wish all my doctors were as caring as she is. I feel blessed to have been referred to her by my family doctor years ago."- L.B. / Google / Nov 19, 2018
If you have a torn earlobe from an earring, a gauged ear, or a traumatic accident, you will make an ideal candidate for earlobe repair surgery with Dr. Plamondon. Most ear repairs can be performed onsite in our state-of-the-art facility. Whether you are looking to repair a small or large tear in your earlobe, Dr. Plamondon and our talented team of staff can help you obtain natural-looking results. If you are uncertain that you need a plastic surgeon to correct your damaged earlobe, please call to schedule a consultation. Dr. Plamondon can examine your condition and determine if this procedure is right for you.
Earlobe repair surgery will be safely performed with a local anesthetic to numb the target area. The majority of earlobe tears can be corrected with sutures that close up the area and mend the problem. If the holes are much larger or more complicated, Dr. Plamondon will discuss different surgical options to recreate your earlobe. You may also need both ears to be altered during treatment to ensure they look symmetrical and balanced. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and bandaged so they can remain safeguarded for healing.
What to Expect
After the earlobe treatment is complete and it is safe to leave our office, you will rest and recover at home. Dr. Plamondon or a member of our team will give you detailed aftercare instructions to follow on your own. It is important to not touch or scratch the ears. Avoid laying on the ears; instead, you should be sleeping in an upright position for the first several days. Dr. Plamondon asks to see her ear surgery patients back within the first week — during this time, Dr. Plamondon will remove the bandages and review the progress of the ears. Your results will continue to look better as the ears heal.
