Hi. Thank you for your question. Usually, after an otoplasty the skin is thicker or wider due to the inflammation. It would be helpful to see a picture of your ears without the gauze in order to tell if they performed a correction of the antihelix. This could be why the upper part of your ear looks stuck out. I would recommend you to consult with a plastic surgeon for a valuation. I hope this helped
