Hello and thank you for your question,
It is normal to have certain stitches removed after some time, it depends on how you are healing and your doctor’s opinion. It is also normal to have some tenderness post op, make sure to consult with your doctor if you have any swelling, fever, or leakage as this could be a sign of infection. I am sorry that you are not satisfied with your results at the moment. It is rather early post op to judge certain results because it takes some time to for your ears to “settle”. Make sure to consult with your doctor on what your concerns are. I wish you luck during your healing process and have a great day!
