In this close up we see that the front face of her right ear looks unnaturally smooth in the before picture.  Some of the normal folds and hills and valleys of the ear cartilage are missing, and the lack of those folds contributes to the ear's position out away from the head.  One of the tasks of the otoplasty operation is to recreate those folds by placing sutures that force the cartilage into a folded position.

Questioner: Rhinoplasty gone wrong? Nostrils not even
Help, I had surgery on the 18th of May. Right away I noticed my nostrils were not even. When I went back to my doc the following day after surgury and addressed this with him he said my nostrils were probably uneven before the surgery, which is not the case. What should I do? What do you think ? I am panicking because it is now the 20th and although I know my nose is still swollen I don't believe my nostrils will change. What do you think?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Go back to your doctor again.
Asymmetric swelling can cause visible asymmetries that go away if it's truly only the swelling that's asymmetric.

But you're only a couple days after surgery! Your doctor is the one who knows what happened during surgery, and you're kind of stuck with him for support right now. Call him again for another evaluation/pep talk.
