Otoplasty may be $4000 on the low end.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who regularly performs ear correction surgeries. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Hello allydennis2909,
The cost of an otoplasty differs from country to country. It also varies within a country. The costs are also dependent on whether you have an operation with an open, invasive traditional method, or with the closed, minimally invasive stitch method. The operation with the stitch method costs 2920 euros for both ears.

Every region is different. However, a typical range for otoplasty will likely be $3500 - 6500 depending upon the surgeon and region where you live. If that price is too high you should consider a second or third opinion. If someone seems very cheap, please do your due diligence and make sure that you're getting the experience necessary to provide you with a great result.
