Post Revision Otoplasty: Large Scar Behind Ear

Had bilateral otoplasty done June 2010. Left ear still sticked out too much compared to the right one and they were really uneven so i had revision in October 2010 for that left ear.At first i noticed ear would stay too close to the head but now looks great and even.

Trouble is the big noticeable scar left from revision and small nodule.Having a fix scheduled for 24th August,but im worried it would make ear look uneven or too close to head again by removing the scar.Using Kelocote to no avail.

Scar revision of the otoplasty scar should not affect the result of the otoplasty itself.  Scar revision will reduce the appearance of the scar, should not move the ear.
