Hi, I've been tanning a lot lately and I had my procedure done on July 13, my dad said that it might be dangerous. Is it dangerous to be under the sun a lot after ear otoplasty?

Sun tanning and effect on scars/scarring after ear pinning surgery (otoplasty)
judging from your multiple previous posts, I would highly recommend that you contact your original surgeon even if they are located at a distance or at least contact them by phone.You have previously described red, hard, firm raised, irregular scars. Tanning and excessive sun exposure can certainly contribute to undesireable scarring.
