Hey, 24 hours is way too early to be concerned about this. My ears were swollen and discolored for almost a week after my operation (if i remember correctly) and they turned out fine!

Thank you for you assurance, the doc told me same too.

He said he had no revisions on such surgery before and told me not to think too much . The numb part starting to have senses though still partially numb.

is the swollen come down time little by little or overnight ?

my ears were red for a bit maybe close to 2-3 weeks. You will be fine, really it did take 6+ months for final results/them to normal out.

thank you so much for all your replies. today is my forth dday coming to fifth to be exact. redness has gone down 30% to my relief , numbness has also decreased , means it is still in process of healing. ate plenty of pineapple, also ate alot of fish and vegs and little red meal. does pineapple really helps, decide to not take my antibiotic as it might neutralize the pineapple effects.

it seems the healing occurs mainly at night anyone feels the same?

today is my seventh day of ops. redness and swollen has gone down quite alot. however my right ear seems to be twitching alot , seems like trying to move forward but could not. i cant describe this feeling, ears doesnt seem to rest in a comfortable position. do i have to still wait for the muscle tissue to form at this time or is this a normal sensation ?

Funny you should mention the 'twitching' I had the same sensation. Never hurt but feels very odd. I had it for about 6-10 months. Now rarely happens but does. No idea what it is, but probably tissue mending back together etc. Don't worry IMO.

your healing will last a month or two before it really settles.

nice to see your photos at 12 days. how are things in the long term ?
I'm researching long term results for a friend who's thinking about having the surgery.....
