Continual protrusion on one side after otoplasty
It is unlikely that this will get medialized or closer to your head with time. The history of otoplasty surgical results is that the ears tend to move outwards. Usually absorbable sutures are not used in this procedure. I use nylon some use mersiline. We would love to help you.

After 8 months you shouldn't see any more changes
it's been 8 months since your surgery. by now your results should be stable and you need not worry about a recurrence.
Should I be worried about otoplasty results overtime & recurrence?
The ears have usually attained their final position 8 months after an otoplasty. However, there are also exceptions when patients have reported that their ears have moved outwards again even later than that. Normally, patients would not tolerate an asymmetry to the degree that is present in your case, but if you are satisfied with the result, you should not have another operation.
