Otoplasty - excess cartilage scars/sharp edges removal?

I had Otoplasty surgery. After the procedure I have been left with excess cartilage scars / sharp edges (see attached) which has been causing me discomfort and I would like them removed. I feel that once these sharp scars are removed/resurfaced to become smooth again the discomfort will be rectified. I would like to get an idea of what would be involved with this procedure and approx cost?

Painful scars after otoplasty

It appears that you have some hypertrophic scarring and this can be symptomatic with pain, tenderness and itching. Surgical revision or injections of steroid and 5FU can help. see a qualified surgeon.
