Is it possible to use tissue from another person for the ear reconstruction?

There were attempts made in this direction, however, the results were not promising due to rejection.

Because tissue other than your own is a “foreign material,” to ensure the success of organ transplants, a patient is required to take special drugs for the rest of his/her life to prevent rejection of those organs. These drugs are known to have dangerous side effects. The risk is worthwhile if the procedure has the potential to save someone's life such as a heart or kidney transplant but not for an aesthetic or non-life-threatening condition.
