Costs of Surgery for Uneven Ears
The surgical fees for the repair of protruding ears varies from surgeon to surgeon, the area if the country and the type of anesthesia. When you mention "uneven eats", if your are referring to protruding ears which are often uneven as well, correction of this procedure is referred to as otoplasty. My typical surgeon's fee ranges from $3500 to $5000. When performed using local anesthesia only, there are no additional fees. However, when twilight sleep or general anesthesia is needed, there is an additional fee of approximately $1500 to $2000, making the total cost $5000 to $7000.

Covering ear surgery costs.
There are several types of ear surgeries.
Some correct certain congenital defects, and depending on your insurance carrier, the procedure may in fact be partially or totally covered by insurance.
Some surgeries, however, will fall under the "not medical necessary" category. Among the uncovered services, Earlobe modification following facelift surgery, cosmetic otoplasty and earlobe reductions are some of the more common ones. Prices on these procedures may vary depending on whether general anesthesia is used, as is often the case in the pediatric population undergoing surgical otoplasties, in which case a surgical facility fee by the hospital also applies. Prices for these procedures described can also vary if it is a first time surgery or if it constitutes a revision procedure, but they can range from $2,000 to under $10,000.
