How Much Does Microtia Surgery Cost?
After a microtia diagnosis is delivered, families are often left wondering: how much does microtia surgery cost? Overall, the cost of microtia treatment varies based on the severity of the deformity and how much of the ear has developed. As a microtia surgery specialist and the creator of the MEDPOR® surgical technique, Dr. John Reinisch can combine multiple procedures into a single treatment to reduce costs. Our Beverly Hills, CA, clinic also has a number of resources to assist families with additional expenses, such as travel accommodations and financing options.

With his extensive experience treating microtia, Dr. Reinisch has developed techniques that reduce the need for multiple procedures, preserving our patients' health and reducing overall treatment cost.

As microtia is a rare condition, there are few specialists who perform this type of surgery on a regular basis. As a result, it is important to choose a specialist, such as Dr. Reinisch, to help you avoid unsatisfactory results or multiple procedures. To address your needs, Dr. Reinisch can perform the most efficient, advanced surgical techniques during your personalized treatment.
The Costs Associated with Microtia Surgery
There are several factors that can affect the cost of microtia surgery. The extent and complexity of your surgery can often dictate the final cost of treatment. If you require both MEDPOR ear reconstruction and atresia repair, you can expect a higher treatment cost than an individual who undergoes MEDPOR treatment alone. For patients who also need rib cartilage reconstruction, which requires two to five surgeries, you can often incur greater costs than a single surgery. Additionally, the costs associated with anesthesia, and coordination with a skilled otologist, will also be a factor.
At Reinisch Plastic Surgery, we have reduced costs for our patients by performing microtia surgery on an outpatient basis. This means there are no additional fees associated with hospital stays or recovery time.
We include a two-night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel for all out-of-town microtia patients, to help minimize the cost of accommodations. We can also connect patients with local families, who have volunteered to host visiting patients at no cost.
Financing Your Surgery
Dr. Reinisch is an out-of-network provider, which means families may have higher out-of-pocket expenses. This does not mean your insurance will not cover microtia surgery at Reinisch Plastic Surgery, but it may mean coverage is reduced. For this reason, we accept CareCredit® financing to assist families with out of pocket cost. CareCredit is a consumer credit program that allows families to pay for medical expenses in a series of low interest or no-interest payments.
Although Dr. Reinisch is out of network, Dr. Youssef Tahiri is an in-network specialist for many major insurance providers in the United States. Dr. Reinisch refers many patients to Dr. Tahiri, who is an accomplished pediatric plastic surgeon.
Dr. Reinisch also works with the Small Wonders Foundation to coordinate support for out-of-pocket costs. This organization was founded in 2005 to provide assistance to families around the world with children born with bodily or facial deformities.
