can someone give me an estimate of how much it would cost to make my right ear normal again? i'm only just about to turn 18 so i don't really have that much money.. but i'm willing to work all summer for it.

From the research ive done in the past this sort of thing is not uncommon when having a ear pierced through the cartilage the infection caused loss of cartilage.This can happen with otoplasty when a heamatoma becomes infected and the whole ear can crumple up and in some cases a total ear reconstruction is needed.Francoise firmin in paris is arguably the best ear surgeon she has been doing mostly ear work since 1984 so i would make contact with her,i dont think its going to be a easy or cheap fix unfortunately, having said that having had contact with someone who has had surgery with her prices are very good a lot cheaper than the uk and us.

A forum member from here traveled from the us to see her in paris and with flights i would say it was still 50% less than the us. But price isnt important you need someone who is highly experienced with this type of surgery, contact her through her website and you can send some pictures, but you will need to see her in person so she can see and feel the injured tissues to make a proper assessment.
