Giving Back Through Charitable Surgery

dr-steven-mobley-salt-lake-cityDr. Steven Mobley, MD – Utah Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Mobley will provide otoplasty surgery (ear-pinning) to low-income school-aged children who are victims of bullying and who otherwise could not afford this operation. Otoplasty is frequently considered a cosmetic operation. However, for many children it can be so much more than just cosmetic. Many studies have shown that children with this condition rate themselves lower in physical appearance, have concentration anxiety, and report significantly more teasing than their peers.

91% Improvement In Quality Of Life

One study found a 91% improvement in quality of life for those children who had undergone otoplasty. The impact of this procedure on someone’s life can be miraculous. Statistics and studies aside, I can speak personally on this issue. I was born with rather prominent ears and was subjected to teasing throughout my grade-school years. After my freshman year in college, I underwent otoplasty and experienced the wonderful self esteem benefits first-hand. My vision is that The Mobley Foundation for Charitable Surgery will make this positive life-change accessible to children who, until now, simply did not have that option in their lives.

I am one of only five Facial Plastic Surgeons in our community. I operate only on faces, and this extra sub-specialization is very important to providing excellent surgical care.

I am the only University-based Facial Plastic Surgeon in Utah, and these academic qualifications along with my writings on the subject make me a uniquely qualified specialist in otoplasty. I have published the following scholarly works on the topic of otoplasty and ear surgery:
