Thanks for posting your concerns and photos. The lighting in the picture and only one angle makes it hard to assess. Likely u have incisions in front of the ear. I don't think I would say there is obvious pulling of the tragus (cartilage in front of ear opening). The tragus may be blunted or has lost some definition. There may be a little extra skin in front of the earlobe. That's what I may possible see here. You would want to wait close to 1 year after to do any surgical revision if necessary. Overall this is satisfactory and may not warrant anything else but we want patients to be happy. Please consult with a board certified plastic / facial plastic surgeon.
Tragus pulled forward after facelift?
Not everyone heals the same way with a facelift. The tragus can be polled slightly forward and still look totally normal as most people do not see this as abnormal. It depends how long it has been since your surgery whether anything would need to be done and how far forward and the tragus is.
Tragal appearance after facelift
From the limited photos, and angle of the photos provided there is little difference between the two and it appears to be normal. It takes several months to be able to access the final outcome of your facelift.
