How much does Otoplasty or Ear Pinning cost?
If you are considering undergoing Otoplasty Surgery, you will first need to get an understanding of what it involves, what it’s likely to cost and how effective the procedure is. At me clinic we can help!
What is Otoplasty Surgery?
Otoplasty Surgery, also known as Cosmetic Ear Surgery, Ear Pinning, Ear Pin back or Ear Reduction Surgery, is a procedure that allows you to decrease or reshape the size of your ears to provide a more balanced or symmetrical appearance.
Undergoing an Otoplasty procedure may be a suitable option if you are looking to:
- reduce the visibility of large or protruding ears
- reshape distorted or damaged ears, or
- change the shape of your ears.
The procedure involves making an incision behind the ear, then modifying the cartilage to adjust protrusion or size of the ears to suit the patient’s requirements.
What can I expect Otoplasty Surgery to cost?
The cost of undergoing Otoplasty Surgery at me clinic starts from $5,360.
As every patient’s treatment requirements are different, it is difficult to provide a standardised cost for an Otoplasty surgery. If you are considering undergoing Otoplasty Surgery, it is important that you book a personal consultation with one of our qualified surgeons to discuss the best options for you, so we can provide an accurate quote for the cost of the procedure.
Some patients who undergo Otoplasty Surgery may also be eligible for a Medicare rebate. Your surgeon will be able to determine if you would be eligible for the rebate during your consultation.
Patients with private health care may also be able to claim some of the costs of the surgery from their insurer. You should contact your insurer prior to undergoing the procedure to see if your policy includes any cover for Otoplasty Surgery.
How effective is Otoplasty Surgery?
Here are some examples of clients’ that we have previously helped to achieve some great results through Otoplasty Surgery.
You’ll notice that the procedure has dramatically reduced ear protrusion and provides a more proportioned and symmetrical shape.
Following the procedure, you may experience some bruising and swelling around the ears, which usually settles within seven days. Sutures will either dissolve or be removed seven to ten days after the procedure. We also supply a headband which should be worn for one to two weeks following the procedure, then only at nights for the next four to eight weeks.
