Otoplasty or ear pinning surgery in Tampa is a procedure that is done to setback prominent ears. People of all ages can request an otoplasty and the timing of when to have this surgery is an individual decision. Usually the youngest age that we can perform otoplasty surgery is five or six years. At this point the ear is pretty much fully grown in into what the adult size ear would be and kids are entering school which could subject them to teasing and bullying. Adults who are self conscious about their ears can also request this surgery. Otoplasty surgery has been shown to improve psychological benefits to patients who are bothered by the appearance of their ears.
