Why are my ears still Uneven After Otoplasty?

Tags:1 month post-op uneven

I thought my Otoplasty went pretty well. The day of the surgery was smooth, my experience was consistent with what I was told to expect and I loved the doctor I went to. The problem is that I think my ears are still uneven! It has been a month since my procedure. Should I give things more time to settle in?

Asymmetry is often difficult to entirely correct. It's best to talk to your doctor and look at your pre surgery pictures

At one month post surgery you almost certainly have some swelling and the healing process is not complete.  Be patient and the results will improve.  You should express any concerns you have to your surgeon on your next follow up visit.
