What is Ear Pinning?

Ears that protrude outward, look misshapen and uneven, or appear too large can negatively impact your self-esteem, especially when younger. Otoplasty (ear reshaping) is a cosmetic procedure that helps to reshape, resize, and reposition the ears. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is a skilled plastic surgeon in Tampa, FL who has helped many adults and children look and feel better about their ears. No matter the issue, Dr. Mang can develop the best surgical plan to meet your cosmetic needs. If you feel embarrassed about the size or shape of your ears, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Mang to receive additional information about ear recontouring surgery.

Is Ear Surgery For You?

We can perform ear surgery on patients at any age; however, the treatment is extremely common for young children. Generally, we recommend having your child undergo ear surgery before starting elementary school. By age six, this procedure is safe and effective for children. If you feel self-conscious about the look, size, shape, or projection of your ears, you may be an ideal candidate for otoplasty. Ear surgery can help you feel more confident and live more comfortably. If you suffer from a torn or damaged earlobe, cosmetic ear surgery can also help treat these issues.

Surgical Technique

In one of our AAAHC-accredited operating rooms, we will start your surgery by administering general anesthesia or IV sedation. The incision is made around the back portion of the ear or within the inner ear. During this procedure, Dr. Mang will reshape the cartilage to create a smaller or larger appearance. Typically, patients have this procedure completed on both ears. This ensures the ears look the same and appear even. Following the procedure, we close the incisions with sutures and carefully bandage your ears so they can safely heal.

What to Expect

After monitoring you in a recovery room, a member of our team will discharge you and send you home to recover. Before returning home, patients receive detailed aftercare instructions to encourage proper healing. Additionally, we will schedule a follow-up appointment in about a week so Dr. Mang can assess your healing progress. When returning home, you should avoid touching, picking, or scratching the ears. You also need to sleep upright for the first several days. At your follow-up appointment, Dr. Mang removes the bandages and assesses you or your child's surgical results. Almost immediately, the results are noticeable, and they will continue to look better as the ears heal.

Reshape Your Ears

Even though the ears are not very big, the shape, size, or position can greatly impact your appearance.
