How Much Does Ear Pinning Cost For a Baby?

Tags:1 month post-op

My daughter is just a one month old baby, but she was born without earlobes. Is there any surgery that can fix this and how much would it cost?

Yes, there are surgeries to make your daughter an ear. Usually an ear is not made until 5-7 years old because of the size change as your daughter grows. The ear can be made using her own cartilage from her ribs or from Medpor(a synthetic material). A thorough evaluation of her hearing will also need to be done to see if anything can be done to improve it. The last option is an implant ear that stays on with magnets with an osseointegrated implant but is very costly.
