The cost of ear surgery can vary, depending on the type of procedure you need and where you live. This includes the surgeon's fee, facility fees and any medical tests or prescriptions that may be required.
If you have large ears that stick out, you can reduce the size and reshape them with an incisionless otoplasty procedure. This newer technique does not make cuts in the skin, and instead inserts a needle into the ear cartilage to make it more flexible. The surgeon then uses stitches to secure the ear in its new shape or fix it to a bone behind the ear.
Another common ear surgery involves removing excess earlobe tissue that you find unattractive. This surgery improves the appearance of the ear and helps restore a more pleasing geometric shape to the ear.
Otoplasty corrects large, pendulous (excessively drooping) or protruding ears that are hereditary or just a result of aging. It can help you feel more confident about your appearance and restore a more pleasing geometric shape to the ears.
Ear reshaping can be an expensive investment, but the results will last for your entire life. It can also give you a fresh start to a more beautiful and youthful appearance.
Before deciding on ear reshaping surgery, meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations for the results of your procedure. Ask the doctor about the risks, complications and costs of ear reshaping surgery.
