Varies...$100-$200?: Try and be seen at a teaching institution, as they usually have systems in place which will help negotiate the best possible price, and payment system. The fees may vary widely, but it is important to be seen soon. If you have a facial fracture, and it requires repair, the best time for intervention is less than 7 to 10 days. After that, the risk of problems goes up a lot!

50-250: But may vary more than that. Not all facial fx req surgery. Look on asps web pg for those w craniofacial background: these have superior training. Cost of surgery may be 10-20 x the cost of office visit.

Specializes in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Facial fracture: A bit of advice is in order. As well as ENT or plastic surgeons, facial fractures are also commonly managed by oral surgeons, many who are also mds (ie physicians). Additionally, many oral surgeons are able to manage these fractures safely and comfortably in an office setting, taking a very significant hospital cost issue out of the equation. Don't limit your options and good luck.
