Pulling on the ear after an otoplasty

Your surgical repair after an otoplasty should be relatively firm at 8 weeks post op however I would avoid all possible trauma for at least 3 months.  You do not want to undo your plastic surgeons work.

Postoperative care following Otoplasty.

The postoperative care for any surgical intervention is important.  Avoiding unnecessary pulling on your ears following otoplasty makes sense. I counsel my patients to alert their hairdressers to be mindful not to pull the ears forward while undergoing the first few haircuts following otoplasty.

How long after an otoplasty can someone pull my ear?

Since each otoplasty can be different, it would be best to ask the surgeon who did your surgery.  In general your healing should be far enough along after 2 months that some trauma or ear pulling should be OK.
