Unhappy with otoplasty/ear reduction
It is unfortunate you are feeling this way and I hope you have been in communication with your surgeon. If your surgeon isn't willing to discuss options with you, seek a second opinion with a doctor skilled at revising otoplasties. Your scars will improve with time. Your ears don't appear awful from your photos. Pains do get better too. So you also have to check your motivations for not liking your results as it would help your surgeon better understand where you are are coming from

It is always best to return to your original surgeon. If this isn't possible, you should seek an experienced surgeon who would be comfortable revising your scars and adding cartilage to improve your helical rim contour.
Questions about shape of the ears and pain after an otoplasty
