Otoplasty cost in India starts from around USD 1,450 and varies depending on the extent of surgery required, your medical history, surgeon, facility and the city where you choose to get the surgery done.
An important expense when it comes to your Otoplasty is your plastic surgeon's fees. IndiCure hand-picks highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering natural-looking results. Although the price tag may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose plastic surgery in India with IndiCure.
Depending on one's needs, men and women of all ages can benefit from different types of otoplasty procedures. For example, pinnaplasty technique could be a cost-effective option for few, while others may need a complete pinna reconstruction surgery. IndiCure recommends you to explore the multiple otoplasty surgical options by meeting our plastic surgeon.
Another important factor that determines the cost of Otoplasty in India is the anesthesia cost- whether the surgery is done in GA or local anesthesia. Our team members at the hospitals will guide you with the anesthesia costs that are usually billed on an hourly basis, but you would be offered a package that is all inclusive, and that too at much discounted prices.
Having your Otoplasty in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility in India also affects the initial quote. But IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the candidacy and the medical history of the patient. This includes the routine medical exams and tests to ensure you're a good fit for otoplasty procedures. Post-surgical expenses can include prescription medications, post-surgery compression garments, and follow-up consultations.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty is a common cosmetic procedure among ear reconstruction plastic surgeries, where the pinna or external ear is brought closer to the head with the removal of cartilage. Ear correction or ear reshaping surgery is also performed to reduce the size of large ears. The surgery changes the size, shape and position of your ears. It is a very popular surgery for those who are conscious of their protruding or "bat-like" ears and like to correct them to feel more confident.
It is preferable to get the ear correction surgery done in childhood (not before 6 years) because the cartilage is quite flexible in young age and thus allows easy and better reshaping. The child also benefits from psychological advantages of the surgery, otherwise there are chances he/ she would be teased by the peers.
Adults who are conscious of the appearance/ shape and size of their ears, with realistic expectations, can undergo the surgery.
Otoplasty can be done for various reasons, which determine the goal of the treatment. We can categorize them broadly into:
Traditional Otoplasty: This deals with pinning the ears back that are too far out, so the patient looks aesthetically appealing. This is mainly a cosmetic surgery.
Reconstructive Otoplasty: This kind of procedure is done in cases where major anatomy of the ear is to be rebuilt, like in cases of trauma and severe diseases. It is done both for cosmetic and functional reasons.
Typically there are 3 main types of otoplasty:
Pinnaplasty: It is the most common type which decreases the angulation of the ear and brings it closer to the head. It is a simple surgery where excess cartilage from prominent ears is removed.
Ear augmentation: It is used to treat small or absent ears. This is a reconstructive procedure which is performed using cartilage from other body parts for a more natural look.
Ear reduction: This procedure is used to reduce the size of huge ears and make them symmetrical.
The basis for otoplasty is primarily two surgical methods called "Cartilage Scoring" and "Cartilage Sparing" methods.
Cartilage scoring method involves making incisions in the cartilage and adding, removing or rearranging the tissues. The disadvantage with this method is chances of scarring, though the scars are usually in inconspicuous areas.
Cartilage sparing method uses sutures to alter the shape and position of the ears. It is a non-invasive method and gives a more natural look.
An incision is made exposing the cartilage of the ear.
Excess skin and cartilage are removed and the ear is repositioned closer to the head.
The incisions are closed with sutures.
You can leave the hospital the same day after surgery or may need an overnight stay if done under general anesthesia. Your head might be heavily covered with bandages to avoid any damage to the surgery site. The stitches are removed about a week after surgery. You should avoid any activity where your head may bump into anything. Adults can go back to work within five to seven days while children can return to school within seven to ten days after surgery.
The results are generally appreciable after five to six weeks, after the swelling subsides. Pinned up ears that are harmonious and in proportion with other facial features can be appreciated after the traditional otoplasty surgery.

Yes, the results of otoplasty are permanent. As you age, the stitches made to the side of your head may loosen slightly, and you may need a touch up.
The surgery is not very painful. The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia for kids. They have some pain and discomfort on waking up which can be well controlled with pain medications.
Plastic surgeons across the world advise to wait until the cartilage in the patient's ears has stabilized, which typically happens by the time the children are around five years old. Most patients who undergo otoplasty are between 5-7 years of age, though many older patients and even adults choose to undergo the procedure to pin their ears.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
