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.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

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.
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. If you feel embarrassed about your ears, please call Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL to schedule your appointment with Dr. Mang. During your consultation, we will answer any questions, develop a custom surgical plan, and determine the costs of your ear surgery. Our group also offers a variety of payment options so you can focus on selecting high-quality care instead of costs. We look forward to helping you fall in love with your new and enhanced appearance.
