What is the price of Otoplasty (ear surgery)?
Otoplasty is a facial plastic surgery procedure aimed at correcting the size or appearance of one or both ears to bring them in harmony with the rest of the face. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will explain various aspects of otoplasty, and also provide an idea of the estimated costs of surgery.
As the procedure involves facial aesthetics, it is important that otoplasty should only be performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon with a successful track record of facial procedures. Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon providing a wide range of procedures for the breast, body, and face, including otoplasty. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Otoplasty costs can vary from one practice to another, and in some cases, even from one patient to another at the same practice. The following factors may impact the overall cost of the surgery:
Where the Practice is Located
The cost of living index usually varies between two regions, which can influence the average cost of most types of goods and services, including plastic surgery services. For instance, the cost of otoplasty in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations may not be the same as the cost in, say, Tennessee.
The fee charged by a cosmetic surgeon may vary depending on their skills, experience, and reputation in the field of otoplasty. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should choose the right surgeon for their needs. Factors such as the fee charged by a surgeon should only be secondary while making such a choice.
Surgical Facility and Anesthesia Costs
If an otoplasty procedure is required to be performed under general anesthesia, the fee of the anesthesiologist should be taken into account. It will vary as per their skills and experience. Depending on the technologies, staff and personalized services provided at an operating facility, the charges of the facility may also vary.
Insurance and Finance
In a few cases, otoplasty may be performed to address medical symptoms such as impairment of hearing. Health insurers will usually provide coverage in such a case. However, if the procedure is performed only for aesthetic purposes, the insurance will not be covered.
Most patients will be eligible to seek affordable financing options such as loans through professional medical care finance companies, bank loans, credit card extended payments, family or personal borrowings, and even crowd funding.
