How Treatment Type Affects Cost
Dr. Greenberg can perform several otoplasty techniques. During a basic procedure, he will create tiny incisions behind your ears, and gently reposition your ears, drawing them in closer to the side of your head. He will place small sutures to keep the cartilage in place, and remove the stitches in four to six days.
Most patients find that otoplasty is a worthwhile investment that provides excellent results and an improved quality of life.
If you feel that your ears are too large or have an unusual shape, we may trim and reshape your cartilage. Often, he can use otoplasty to correct severe congenital defects. This latter method will cost more than basic otoplasty, since it is a lengthier procedure and more complex.
Anesthesia, Operating Room Fees, and Post-operative Care
During your consultation, you and Dr. Greenberg will consider the different types of anesthesia. In most cases, he will administer local anesthesia prior to your surgery. However, if you are nervous about the treatment, or if he is operating on your child, he may recommend an alternative sedation option.
Surgical facilities and hospitals often charge additional fees. At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, facial surgery procedures will take place at our ambulatory center in Woodbury. Using our own facility, we can provide more accurate treatment estimates and affordable final costs.
Following otoplasty, you will typically have one or more appointments with Dr. Greenberg. If you require more extensive post-operative treatment, your costs will be higher. Fortunately, otoplasty typically involves a brief recovery time and minimal follow-up care.
Investing in Surgical Experience
A less-experienced surgeon will sometimes charge less than a veteran physician. When patients choose a less-experienced surgeon, they run the risk of requiring additional treatments or revision surgery due to unsatisfactory results. In some cases, patients may even require medical treatment to address post-surgical complications.
However, when you select an experienced doctor like Dr. Greenberg, his skill and experience provides safe, pleasing results. Dr. Greenberg has performed thousands of plastic surgery procedures. He is certified both by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Greenberg is also nationally renowned for his expertise and has been featured in many major publications.
