There is a gap in my right ear. Can anything be done to make it more 'rounded', like my left ear? (Photo)

My right ear has a part missing which completely different to my left ear which is normal, is there any surgery you can perform to solve this?

This is a difficult ear deformity to surgically correct since it involves both a lack of cartilage and skin coverage.  I would seek a plastic surgeon in a university setting to evaluate the problem.
