If tumor is believed to be malignant, preoperative counseling should include possible facial nerve sacrifice, neck dissection, reconstruction of the facial nerve, and possible facial reanimation surgery. ◆ Indications for lateral lobectomy include the following: ◆ Benign or malignant tumor (exceptions include benign lymphoepithelial cysts and parotid lymphoma) ◆ Refractory sialolithiasis, sialoadenitis (chronic parotitis), and chronic sialorrhea; some authors advocate total parotidectomy for chronic parotitis ◆ As part of lymph node dissection for other head and neck primary tumors, primarily cutaneous malignancies of the face and scalp ◆ Excision of first branchial cleft cyst involving parotid gland ◆ Although superficial parotidectomy is performed for tumors located in the lateral lobe of the parotid, most authors now recommend excision of the tumor with a healthy cuff of normal gland, particularly if the tumor is located in the tail.

The wound is copiously irrigated with normal saline. ◆ Two 10-mm Jackson-Pratt drains are placed into the wound through separate stab incisions; one is placed posteriorly in the neck along the trapezius muscle and the other is placed anteriorly in the neck, parallel to the strap muscles. To prevent suction on the carotid artery, the drains may be loosely sewn to the fascia of the deep muscles of the neck using an absorbable suture to hold them in place. ◆ The incision is closed in two layers; the platysma is tightly closed using an absorbable stitch, and the skin is closed using surgical staples or suture.

If a unilateral exploration had been undertaken with preoperative localization, then many endocrine surgeons will obtain a rapid parathyroid hormone (PTH) assay to confirm the adequacy of resection.
