Thank you for your question. The "pixie" ear deformity can be recognized by its "stuck on" or "pulled" appearance, which is caused by the tension involving the facelift cheek and jaw line skin flaps at the earlobe attachment point. At only 5 weeks following surgery, you are in the early stages of healing and scar maturation, which continues for approximately a year following surgery. Discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon at this point.
The shape of your ears should not change because of your face/neck lift. Discuss this with your Plastic Surgeon while reviewing your pre-op photos.
