Is there any surgery for cauliflower ear?

I box a lot as a pass time and I've noticed that a lot of other boxers end up with cauliflower ears from blows to the ear. I'm worried that if I box long enough i'll get it too. Is there any reliable surgery to get rid of it if I do get it? How much would cauliflower ear surgery cost me if I had to get it?

When you get hit in the area, it may swell up. If it does, the cartilage loses its good blood supply and this can lead to a Cauliflower ear. Unfortunately, once that has set in, it is very difficult to fix this cartilage. The best recommendation that I have for you is if your ear swells up, seek out care immediately!
