This is my ear scar 4 months post mini lift. Red, but not raised. I have been told by my PS that they will take up to a year to mature. I am concerned that they are still red. Is this normal?

Scars at four months after a mini facelift are maturing and commonly are still red. This will take several more months to settle down. Be patient and put make-up over it if it bothers you.
