Earlobe repair costs have variability because the complexity of the procedure needed to repair the problem can vary quite a bit.  The procedure is easily done in the office, but don't let that fool you into thinking that anyone can do a good job.  There are many fine details in technique that separate a great result from an average one.

The most simple case is a stretched piercing or a simple tear.  You will likely find a range of around $400-$900 per ear.

For more complex issues with stretched tissue (gauge defects, etc) or tissue loss from a tear or other trauma the complexity goes up and so does the cost involved.  In that scenario you should expect to double the figures mentioned above.

Ear Lobe surgery cost varies significantly for a number of good reasons: Prices vary greatly because the surgery itself encompasses a wide range of techniques that can be performed to different extents. My recommendation is to first find the most qualified surgeons where you want the surgery performed that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or Facial Plastic Surgeon you trust, then compare prices between them. See the below link on suggestions on how to find the most qualified plastic surgeon for your procedure. General Factors that influence the price of plastic surgery include:

1. Location - Most procedures will be performed in a doctor’s office where costs can be contained. If not will it be performed in a hospital or an independent out- patient facility? Geographical location also has a significant influence. RealSelf has average charges for most areas of the USA.

2. Type of Anesthesia – local anesthesia is typical and less costly. If IV sedation or General Anesthesia is used: Will a board certified anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or an RN be used?

3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best and longest trained is most often a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery

4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how difficult will your surgery be and how long it will take, etc.

Earlobe surgery for torn earlobes is generally a straightforward procedure performed under local anesthesia. It takes about 20 to 25 minutes per earlobe.  We can perform earlobe repiercing at the time of repair at no additional charge.

Hello Rooster53,

To find out the cost in your area you would need to consult with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon.  These are not usually covered by insurance.  The repair is usually several hundred dollars per ear.

I hope this helps and good luck.

I would recommend visiting with a board certified plastic surgeon.  We typically charge between $500 - 750 depending on whether one or both earlobes are involved and assuming it a straight forward tear in the earlobe.

Seek a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon as pricing varies from surgeon to surgeon. Price can range from $400-$800. You will be able to re-pierce your ears 2 months after you have the earlobe repair done. Good luck, Dean Vistnes.
