Cost of Cosmetic Ear Surgery / Otoplasty

Cost of Cosmetic Ear Surgery / Otoplasty

Sometimes, patients are interested in cosmetic ear surgery – also known as otoplasty – to change the shape of their ears, but they are concerned about the cost. Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph T. Cruise believes that the value of something can’t always been seen. When you are dissatisfied with your appearance, anything that can alleviate the anxiety you feel is worth more than simply what it costs. As an investment in yourself, otoplasty produces both internal and external benefits that remind you over the years just how valuable you are.

Quality vs. Value

Although financial concerns may be a part of your decision to have cosmetic ear surgery, Joseph T Cruise, MD and the staff at Cruise Plastic Surgery do not want to see anyone refuse a procedure or select a plastic surgeon based on price alone. We encourage all patients to consider 3 important factors when choosing a surgeon:

  1. History and experience. A surgeon’s training, certifications, and background are his building blocks for producing fantastic results.

  2. Testimonials and reviews. What patients say about their plastic surgeon can give you insight into the quality of his facility, and the post-surgery recovery process.

  3. Ear surgery before and after pictures. Viewing pictures allows you to see a plastic surgeon’s otoplasty results for yourself

If you are interested in receiving the best, highest-quality, long-term cosmetic ear surgery results, you must consider more than the cost of the procedure: you must consider what goes into the procedure to create the value of that price.

Joseph T Cruise, MD’s Approach

Joseph T Cruise, MD has years of experience performing cosmetic ear surgery with predictable, satisfactory results. The reason that ears protrude is that the cartilage in the back of the ear does not bend and shape itself in infancy, so the ears do not lie flat against the scalp. Joseph T Cruise, MD reshapes this cartilage, leaving minimal and hidden incision scars, so the ears are natural and proportional with the patient’s face. The extent of the otoplasty and whether or not it is combined with other procedures, will affect its cost.

On average, the total cost of cosmetic ear surgery is $4,500. This price range reflects standard fees such as the surgeon and anesthesia fee, and costs associated with the surgery equipment and facilities. After taking into consideration your personal desires and concerns, you will be provided an individualized otoplasty cost estimate at your pre-surgery consultation.
