Hi Dear ,welcome to health care magic....

in case of damage to external ear covering,there will be no loss of hearing in future case of perforation in tympanis membrane,majority heal spontaneously ....if it fail to heal,then graft is place on tympanic membrane and there will be no hearing loss ...
