Wearing motocross helmet after otoplasty?

I'm almost a year post otoplasty and still worried and very hesitant to wear a helmet. I'm just wondering if I can put a a helmet like normal and pull it down or if I still have to be very careful.

Helmet after Otoplasty

You can definitely wear a helmet one year after an otoplasty. A year is long enough for your “new ears” to be settled in. Go ahead and wear your helmet. It is perfectly fine.

Go ahead and wear the helmet -- you're not going to undo anything that was done in your surgery.
