As of 2015, medical doctors on RealSelf.com give a range of between $3,000 and $6,000 for the cost of otoplasty, or ear pinning, a common ear surgery. Ear lobe repairs range from $350 to $1,000 per ear. PlasticSurgery.org places the cost of Otoplasty at $3,000 before related expenses.
Expenses related to ear surgeries consist of the cost of sedative/anesthesia, prescription medications, the operating facilities that were used, the surgeon's fee, admission to the operating facility for a day, post surgery garments and medical tests. In cases where there is extensive damage to an earlobe or cartilage must be removed from an ear, the price of surgery continues to rise. These surgeries are considered elective surgeries and are not typically covered under health insurance plans.
