Otoplasty Cost in Los Angeles and Orange County

Surgical fees vary widely across the country and even in the same area. An area such as South Florida will have lower fees than an expensive city such as Los Angeles or New York or an area with fewer cities. For the value that quality board certified plastic surgeons provide in South Florida, many patients come from out of state to have surgery here.

To maximize value while maintaining quality, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facility, These surgeons must maintain the highest quality to keep the accreditation, have greater incentive to ensure a higher caliber of staff who detailed knowledge of plastic surgery procedures, will maintain comfortable and safe operating facilities to maximize patient referral, and ensure minimal waste to keep costs to a minimum.

Dear Saranicole from Los Angeles County, California
I perform Otoplasty also know as ear pinning with local anesthesia and oral sedation as an office procedure. Therefore reducing the cost associated with operating room and anesthesiologist. Ear pinning takes about one hour to perform and cost between $4,000 to $5,000.

This surgery is usually performed under a regional anesthesia with a small amount of sedation as an outpatient. The recovery process from the surgery is minimal. In Miami, this is a popular surgery as it is quite effective in area of concern for many patients. When choosing a surgeon for otoplasty, be sure to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience with ear surgery, face lifting, and otoplasty.

Depends on who and where

Call around to doctors that have worked on your friends and family. See who comes recommended, and then go in for a consultation.

At that point you can consider the costs. There is usually a big variation in fees, so expect a wide range.

Another good rule of thumb is to understand that these procedures cost more in certain parts of the country than in others. For instance, in California and New York, you might pay anywhere from $8000 to $12000 for breast implants, but in less populated areas where the cost of living is lower, such as where I live in Utah, you would normally see fees for a breast augmentation around $4000 to $6000.
