How Much Does Earlobe Repair Cost?

Earlobe repair cost
We charge $400 for an earlobe repair. If the tear is more complicated, such as a very large hole after a gauge, then the cost may be higher.
Ear lobe repair can be as inexpensive as $350. It is $850-1200 in my practice but I use a two flap technique to protect against recurrence. If you have a simply closure, the scar tissue will stretch and you will need it revised over and over.
All the best,

Ear lobe repair is one of the most common office procedures and plastic surgery. In our practice, we routinely performed the surgery under local anesthesia.

Torn Earlobe Repair Cost
Cosmetic surgery is elective, so insurance plans generally don't cover the procedure. However, there may be exceptions. Plastic surgery covers a broad area of medicine which includes both reconstructive procedures and cosmetic procedures. Torn ear lobe is usually considered cosmetic, but coverage varies and could possibly be considered reconstructive based on your specific condition. First speak with your insurance provider to determine benefits and coverage, then find a cosmetic surgeon who may help you. Out-of-pocket cost of torn ear lobe repair varies based on region, and ranges from approximately $500 to $1500. Best of luck.
