Cost to fix uneven ears

The costs for otoplasty varies significantly around the country. Our cost for otoplasty ranges from $2500 to $5000 + MD Anesthesia Related Costs (if necessary). More expensive cities such as New York or Los Angeles or areas with fewer board certified plastic surgeons may be more expensive.

One way to ensure the lowest possible costs and achieve the highest possible quality is to locate a board certified plastic surgeon who owns his or her own AAAASF nationally accredited center.

Consult with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

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.

Otoplasty cost

Really not possible to give you a cost estimate without an examination.  An otoplasty can sometimes be performed under local anesthesia which will impact the final cost.

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.
