How Much Would It Cost to Get an Otoplasty on a Single Ear? (photo)

I have asymetrical ears. One of them curves like the model's in the attached photo while the other sticks out like a normal ear. I've always worn my hair down because it bothers me so much. How much would it cost to get one ear pinned? Would it cost a lot less than getting two done?

                 This can be performed under local anesthesia and will cost at least $3000.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of facial and ear correction surgeries each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Single Ear Otoplasty

The average cost for cosmetic ear surgery in Toronto, Ontario, is from $6000 to $8000 for both ears, and it would be a couple thousand dollars less if only one ear is targeted. Some variables that are considered to determine cost include the surgeon fees, anesthesia/anesthesiologist fees, technique applied, and surgical facility.

There is a very wide range depending upon your city and the office you choose. A one sided otoplasty is typically cheaper than doing both sides as it requires shorter operative time. You can expect a range from $3500-6000 depending upon the above factors. I hope this information is helpful.
