Scuba diving and swimming after ear pinning surgery (otoplasty)
This is an excellent question and partially depends on how much pressure and what type of gear you are wearing. Part of the problem is that you ears may still be numb and it is difficult for you to assess when there is excessive detrimental pressure on the ear. I would consult your surgeon but it is my general recommendation to avoid this type of activity for 6 weeks.

Scuba diving after otoplasty
In general, if all your incisions are healed and there are no open areas, I recommend waiting 4 weeks after surgery.
