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, Dr. Mobley can speak personally on this issue. He was born with rather prominent ears and was subjected to teasing throughout his grade-school years. After his freshman year in college, he underwent otoplasty and experienced the wonderful self esteem benefits first-hand. Dr. Mobely\\\’s 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.
