I had otoplasty 4 days ago and after taking my bandage off I am worried that there seems to be abnormal swelling? (Photos)

It looks like the swelling is normal for 4 days. Your surgeon needs to examine you (as I am sure he/she is doing) to make sure you do not have a hematoma, or blood collection beneath the skin (like a "wrestlers ear"). It does not look like that to me but the pictures are not adequate to determine that so ask your surgeon. Good luck. It looks like you will have a great result.
