Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) in Tampa, FL
With the rise in increasingly helpful surgical cosmetic procedures, you do not have to live with any abnormal or undesirable facial or body shape. If you have ears that stick out too far or they have an unusual shape, you may be the perfect candidate for otoplasty or ear pinning in Tampa, FL. Otoplasty helps create ears with normal shape and folds, and normal protrusion from the sides of your head. Dr. Soler provides ear surgery for patients throughout southwest Florida, which includes St. Petersburg and Clearwater. Patients come to Dr. Soler because of his extensive experience and knowledge of ear surgery.
How is otoplasty performed in Tampa?
Dr. Soler performs otoplasty under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Your ears will remain bandaged with a head band for a number of days. Any initial discomfort after surgery can be minimized with oral pain medication. This procedure can be performed from the age of five or six. Ears gain their normal appearance within 10 – 20 days after the ear surgery in Tampa. You may have to wear a head band for protection for two to three weeks. Any kind of contact sport must be avoided for about 30 days post surgery.
Does insurance pay for my ear surgery?
Otoplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. Any related risks or suitability needs to be determined at the time of consultation in our Tampa office. Even though all surgical procedures have a slight degree of risk, major complications are rare in ear reshaping surgery. Any minor complications that may arise do not hamper the end result of your surgery. If you are interested in scheduling an otoplasty consultation with board certified surgeon Dr. Pedro Soler, give our office a call today.
