Extra skin fold behind ears, following otoplasty? (Photo)

Otoplasty procedure was 1 week ago. I am basically happy with the result, but am very concerned that behind both ears there is an extra fold of skin where the stitches are. I asked my Dr. at my follow up and he said they were that way on purpose and it would reduce with time. I am concerned as it is very obvious from behind. Everything I've read has to deal with waiting for the swelling to go down, but do I really have to wait 3 - 6 months before this isn't visible when my hair is pulled up?!
