Would surgery fix my misshapen ear cartilage?
To be able to answer your question, I have to know when your tragus got infected and when you had it lanced.
Ear Surgery for misshapen ears
Please consult with your ENT surgeon to assess whether the narrowing also involve the external ear canal, if not, then a simple conchalplasty will solve the problem pretty easily, but if the external ear canal is also involved, then canaloplasty together with conchalplasty may be needed.
