Thank you for your question.
Without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of any further treatments it is difficult to be comprehensive.
It can be seen after this type of procedure for the area around the ear to be numb. I would discuss with your surgeon about the integrity of the nerve that gives sensation to the area around the ear. Sometimes this can be stretched or injured during the surgery. It is a known risk. Often this regenerates within a year.
Best of luck,
