You can fix them. You can recontruct the wany cartilage on the right and the left side just need some of skin readjusted or excised to make the area flatter. Other issues can be addressed as well. Don't worry this can be improved a great deal!

Unfortunately, you otoplasty experience is not uncommon.  It is possible to markedly improve the shape of your ears.  The surgery is a little more complex because of the scarring caused by the first surgery and might require a skin graft behind your ear. Fortunately the surgey can usually be done under local anesthesia which can help keep the cost of the surgery down.

Sorry about your unhappy results. This happened as the result of ear cartilage incisions and placement of very tight sutures and subsequent scar formation. This can be improved by cartilage scar dehiscence and reconstruction.
