Lop Ear

More than just surgery.

At a young age, children are especially prone to bullying when the shape, size or orientation of their ears differ from their peers. Dr. Mobley grew up through adolescence with larger ears himself and had his otoplasty surgery during his early college (pre-med) years. Dr. Mobley has a special place in his heart for children who are suffering through the unfair disadvantages of looking unnecessarily “different” from other kids. When it comes to the most defining features of your face, it’s more than just surgery — it’s life changing confidence.

Dr. Mobley is in the top 1% of surgeons nationally who perform otoplasty. A portion of every otoplasty surgery goes to fund The Mobley Foundation which is a 501(C)3 charity whose sole purpose is to provide otoplasty surgery to children whose parents are desirous of the surgery but are lower income and could not otherwise afford the operation.

What is Otoplasty Surgery?

Otoplasty is the medical term for surgery to correct protruding ears, often called cosmetic “ear pinning”. Dr. Mobley has been an otoplasty patient himself. Bothered by his larger ears since mid high school, when Dr. Mobley was in college he had otoplasty and it was truly a life-changing event for him. While the entire story is longer, the short of it is that having this life-changing procedure as a young pre-medical student lead Dr. Mobley to his current career as a nationally recognized Facial Plastic Surgeon. This early experience with otoplasty taught him a key lesson about cosmetic surgery. So often, people simply just want to look “their best normal” from cosmetic surgery and fit in and not stand out. Not standing out is what cosmetic otoplasty surgery is all about.

Dr. Mobley has lectured and published extensively on otoplasty surgery. It is not uncommon for him to performs 30 or more otoplasties in a given year putting him in the top 1% of otoplasty surgeons. As with any operation, choosing a surgeon that performs a large number of cases yearly is one of the most important variables to consider. Our goal at Mobley MD is that you, and/or your child, have a safe surgical experience; and, especially for younger children, that their emotional comfort is supported through their entire surgical experience

Dr. Mobley believes strongly to NOT INCISE (cut into) the ear cartilage. This creates unnatural “harsh” edges and is not ideal. With a sculptor’s eye, the gentle curves of the ear cartilage is reshaped with stitches that provide a natural shape that should last a lifetime. Less commonly protrusions of cartilage called “Darwinian Tubercles” can also be corrected all in the same procedure. The artistry of this operation includes not only creating a beautiful ear, but an ear that has natural curves, bends and a normal distance from the scalp.
