In brief: Prevention
Surgical treatment is difficult, it is best to prevent the deformity by avoiding trauma wih protective gear, or by complete evacuation of the ear hematoma if it occurs.

In brief: Fix it quickly!
When the injury happens, get seen by and ENT or facial plastic surgeon asap.
Prompt intervention will help minimize long term sequelae. Cauliflower ear is when the ear gets bruised and blood collects between the skin and cartilage. Long term deformity will result if not treated. If it is an old injury, walk, don't run, to see the same md's as above. They _may_ be able to help out. Good luck.

In brief: Surgery
Asps plastic surgeons are able to improve cauliflower here by carefully dissecting the skin along with the layer over the cartilage off of the cartlidge and then contouring the abnormal layer at least that followed by replacing the skin.
