Troubling Otoplasty - Arizona, AZ

I am 16 years old now and I had an otoplasty done...

I am 16 years old now and I had an otoplasty done 6 MONTHS ago and they are still red and dry. I Have been putting lotion, vitamin E, Petroleum Jelly, anything you could think of, on them. I don't know what can heal them anymore, so I am obviously a little upset with the whole thing. What should I do?!

I posted a previous review on my otoplasty a couple months ago and would like to update it. My ears are still very red and I havn't seen much improvement. My surgeon keeps giving me scar fading cream and other products but I feel like it won't change anything. The skin on my ears is just very thin and sometimes it even peels off a little. I need help and would appreciate some suggestions, thank you!

I posted a previous review on my otoplasty a couple months ago and would like to update it. My ears are still very red and I havn't seen much improvement. My surgeon keeps giving me scar fading cream and ither products but I feel like it won't change anything. The skin on my ears is just very thin and sometimes it even peels off a little. I like the way they look, it's just there outside color. I need help and would appreciate some suggestions, thank you!

I had an otoplasty done 10 months ago and my ears...

I had an otoplasty done 10 months ago and my ears are shaped okay, the left ear could by a little farther pinned back but it's fine. That isn't the problem, the problem is that they are still red! It appears to be a scar but I don't know. My surgeon (who I believe doesn't know what to do) keeps telling me to put 'Scar Fading' cream on them but I feel like I need some type of special treatment because the discolorization doesn't seem to be getter better, I will post some pictures of them but I really need help. I live in Riverside, California and would appreciate any comments. Thank you!

HELPPP MEEE

It's been 2 years now and My ears are literally still the same, there has to be someone out there experiencing the same thing as me, please someone help me. I just need some plan, I just can't do nothing about it

2 Year Update

It's been 2 years since my Otoplasty and unfortunatly my ears basically look the same. I am unsure of what to do, I just wish there was some way to get the lost skin/cartilage back and get my old ear skin color back. If someone please knows a skin/ear specialist that I can talk to that would be perfect.

Any suggestions

SKIN TREATMENT HELP

Just still trying to get this situation out there, been 3 years now and still my skin looks the same as the pictures above, would really appreciate suggestions.

Any Suggestions out there?

It's been almost 3 years since I have recieved my Otoplasty, which is crazy to even think that it has been that long. It also makes me even sadder to see that my ears have made no progress in improving. There is no need for me to post new pictures because they are the same looking as before, very red, dry, roughness on my ear, which I wouldn't even consider skin. I am expltremelt desperate, any ideas would help but just to inform you, I have tried the following to help repair them; Laser Treatment & Scar/Skin Creams.... One doctor suggested skin injections but I'm feeling real pestimistic about that, please let me know what you think! Thanks

3 and a Half Years Later...

So it has been almost 4 years and my ears still look the same as the pictures posted above. I am wondering what step I should take to try to get something fixed. Any ideas out there?

Extremely Unusual Otoplasty

I had an Otoplasty done almost 4 years ago now, & it turned out to be the biggest regrets I'll ever have. Everyday sense then I have had to put makeup on my ears to try to cover the dark red scarring skin that has come around my ears. I have tried scar creams, laser treatments, steroid injections, and now I am not quite sure what to do. Obviously will not help so I believe I am going to have to remove my sutures and see if I was allergic or resistent to the type of sutures in my ears. Any other suggestions on what happened to my ears or how to fix them? Any comment helps, thanks!

P.S. Make sure your doctor is a specialist on whatever he is doing, not saying it was my doctors fault, but for something this permanent I wish my surgeon was more experienced.
