How Much Would Ear Piercing Closing Cost?

They are your typical ear piercings, and they haven't been torn or gauged. I would like to know, how much would it cost to get the holes closed?

Ear lobe reconstruction cost

  • 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 repair cost

The cost for earlobe repair is a common question. Earlobes requiring repair can be from a variety of reasons. Some may include a torn earlobe from a pulled earring, gauged earlobes that are now unwanted, facelift surgery causing pulled earlobes, or just simply elongated from older age.

Because of the variety of different causes, earlobe repair may vary in complexity. A price range would be $500-$900 per earlobe. This will vary also depending on the region of the country you are in and the surgeon's expertise. I use some special techniques to minimize scarring and notching that can be seen if not reconstructed in experienced hands. This repair can be performed comfortably under local anesthesia to avoid any additional fees such as anesthesia fees. Earlobes can be re-pierced 6 weeks later if desired.

Consult with an experienced board certified facial plastic / plastic surgeon in you area.

Ear piercing closure costs in Atlanta

Closing a torn earlobe or an ear piercing is performed much in the same manner.  As a result, these 2 procedures generally have similar costs. The price of closure depends on your geographic location, the number of piercings, and the experience and education of the plastic surgeon.  Typically, one ear piercing closure runs between $350 - $500; if you have the opposite performed at the same time, usually the second side is discounted.
