Otoplasty (cosmetic ear surgery) is a unique procedure that can produce lifelong results at almost any age. The procedure helps correct the shape, size, and overall appearance of the ear for a more symmetrical facial appearance. While otoplasty is primarily done for cosmetic purposes, it can have a profound effect on the patient’s self-confidence for years to come.
What Goes Into the Cost of Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a highly custom procedure. While some people opt for the surgery to correct a deformity caused by congenital defect or trauma, others are more interested in the surgery to minimize the appearance of overly protruding ears. The cost of otoplasty surgery can vary depending on several factors. Those include:
- Your surgeon’s skill: You can find surgeons of varying skillsets who offer otoplasty surgery. It only makes sense that a board-certified surgeon would command a higher price tag than a surgeon who is just starting out their career.
- The complexity of the procedure: A more extensive procedure like correcting an ear deformity will generally cost more than a simple ear pinning procedure.
- Hospital and surgical facility fees: Some otoplasty procedures may be done in your doctor’s office. However, most are done at a hospital on an outpatient basis which can sometimes be more expensive.
- Anesthesia costs: Depending on the complexity of your procedure, you may be put under general anesthesia. This requires a skilled anesthesiologist who charges on a per-hour basis.
The above can add up to a range between $5,000 and $10,000. At Specialty Aesthetic Surgery, our skilled, board-certified surgeons regularly perform otoplasty procedures of all types. They’ll help customize a treatment that will yield the best possible outcomes according to your individual concerns and goals.
Other Costs to Consider
When considering otoplasty surgery, there are other expenses that can add up. Some of these include pre-surgery medical exams, lab work, and prescription medications. Post-surgical expenses might include compression garments, pain medication, and follow-up visits. Be sure to ask your surgeon what’s included in your cost estimate to ensure you’re not getting hit with any unwanted surprises.
