Do I Still Have Sutures Holding My Cartilage Together Many Years After an Otoplasty?
I had an otoplasty procedure done when I was 12 (16 years ago). I was under the impression that the sutures from my surgery dissolved. After doing some research, I think the set of sutures that were placed in my years 16 years ago to hold the cartilage are still there. Is this possible?
I am always nervous to fold my ears forward and have always been super cautious to never do this. Is it okay to fold your ears forward? Could this cause any issues?
