Pixie Ear Fixes
A pixie ear deformity usually appears when too much skin is removed below the ear after a facelift. Some facial surgeon's have this problem with virtually every patient on whom they do facelifts. Look for this carefully in their before-and-after gallery. First, bring up the problem with your surgeon. He should fix this in the office for nothing. If you have already lost trust, simple repairs should not cost much, less than $500.

Depends on the procedure
Thank you for your question.
There are several ways to correct pixie ears. I would have to exam you in order to know what procedure would be best for you. Then, I could give you the exact quote. It would be best to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon for a consultation where you can find out all of your options and the prices. For one side, should range from $600 on up for this simple office procedure.

Depends on what has to be done for pixie ear repair
There is really no answer to this without a surgeon seeing you in person and performing a physical exam. There are many ways to perform pixie ear correction, but the scar from a quick surgery may not be acceptable to you. If the pixie ear is severe enough, a facelift flap may be a necessary part of the correction.
Pixie ear repair cost depends on what needs to be done
Sometimes the pixie ear can be improved by advancing the ear upwards but you may have an incision inferior to your ears. If you want to avoid the incision you will likely need to undergo a more extensive procedure in order to pull up the skin enough to relieve the pixie ear deformity. This may require more complicated face lift techniques to pull up the muscle. Depending on what it looks like, I might be able to tell you what you need. If it is a simple repair it may cost around $500 - $1000. But if it requires more extensive work the cost could go up to $2000 - $4000.
