uneven ears after conchal cartilage harvest for revision rhinoplasty

I had a revision rhinoplasty and the surgeon had to harvest ear cartilage from the one ear. The ears are now uneven and it is a noticeable asymmetry between them (the conchal bowl of the one ear is much less deeper than the other). I do also have a visible scar , because the surgeon used the anterior approach to harvest cartilage. The surgeon is willing to use laser treatment to fix the scar, but he thinks that I am crazy when I am saying that my ears are uneven and that I want that to be fixed,He refuses to fix that, so I have to go to another surgeon to fix that. (Please see my review and my questions for more information) .   What about you who had a rhinoplasty and needed ear cartilage graft and it was taken from the one ear? Do you think it is unreasonable to want this asymmetry to be fixed?

Hey Angie, I can upload some photos in my review, although it is not so easy to see these things so clear (due to the camera flash etc) but you can see everything very clear in reality.
