Swollen ear after otolasty?
Doctor Answers 1
Swelling can persist for many months depending on your level of activity. Also our facial features including ears are not symmetrical. Added to that is the fact that you had surgery only on one ear which makes the assymetry that much more pronounced. You are focusing on your ears more than before surgery and are now noticing other differences that probably always existed.
