Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. As long as there wasn't any significant scar tissue that had started to form before the surgery was done, then the ear should be back to normal. If done soon enough, the aural hematoma surgeries have I have done have usually turned out normal again. If there was some scar tissue formation already, then it is possible that the scar tissue will cause it to droop some. There are always some exceptions, and nothing is 100%, but there is a good chance his ear will look normal if the procedure was done soon enough. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.

If they did the quilt pattern surgery, the wound is normally left open to granulate closed. That typically leaves very little scar tissue. At 3 weeks post surgery, though, I would expect the incision to be healed or almost healed.
