How Much is Earlobe Repair in Las Vegas?

Ear lobe reconstruction cost
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.
Cost for the repair
The cost for the repair will vary depending on the location you are living in. Cost here in new york city range from several hundred dollars and more.
Ear Lobe Repair Costs
Thank you for your question.
The cost of repair will differ from surgeon to surgeon depending on the experience of the surgeon, whether it is performed under local anesthesia or not, etc..
In my practice, I perform this procedure under local anesthesia. The stretched out portion of the earlobe is excised (cut out) and the two "raw edges" are brought together. This normally results in a nice result.
If a patient wanted to re-pierce the ears, I would ask that they wait a few months prior to re-piercing.
The cost will vary from $1000-$1800 depending on if we are repairing one side vs. both sides. We also try to introduce potential patients to other patients who have had this procedure performed.
I hope this helps.
