Otoplasty or Ear Pinning Cost

Otoplasty in San Diego can range from 3,000 to 6,000 dollars. This is a relatively simple office procedure for adults and results are usually very satisfying. I have never heard of insurance paying for this procedure.

Ear pinning is cosmetic, will not be covered by insurance, and may cost $3000 on the low end.

The cost of ear pinning or otoplasty

thank you for the question.

No I do not believe insurance will cover this.

The out of pocket costs can be anywhere from 3000 to around $6000. the higher ranges of cost would be situations where you're undergoing anesthesia or sedation for your surgery but the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia very safely and effectively.
