It's Your Face - Trust Experience.

dr-steven-mobley-salt-lake-cityOtoplasty, also called ear pinning, is an outpatient surgery that reshapes the cartilage of the ear to allow it to rest closer to the head for a more natural look. Choosing the right Otoplasty surgeon is especially important because this surgery is frequently performed on young patients. Parents can rest assured that their children are in excellent hands with Dr. Mobley and his staff, all expertly trained for the safe and compassionate care of pediatric patients. Dr. Mobley has a particular interest in ear pinning surgery as he underwent Otoplasty himself as a child, and his personal experience shows through in the care he takes to ensure patient comfort and the best outcome possible in each and every ear pinning surgery he performs.

Reasons For Otoplasty Surgery

You may decide to have cosmetic ear surgery because you feel your ears stick out or are larger than you wish. Some of the reasons for reshaping the ear include:

  • Protruding ears
  • Prominent ears
  • Ear reshaping
  • Less common “lop ear” deformities

During your consultation, Dr. Mobley will work with you to determine the right size and position of your ears for the best results possible.

The Mobley Foundation

Dr. Mobley brings a unique empathy to those who suffer from large and protruding ears as he has also had Otoplasty surgery when he was a child, and knows first hand the frustration of being teased as well as the pure joy and relief that occur following Otoplasty. He has made it his personal mission to eliminate the insecurities felt by children with larger ears by forming the Mobley Foundation to Charitable Surgery.

The Mobley Difference


Each year, Dr. Mobley performs an average of fourteen times the number of otoplasties than most other plastic surgeons across the nation. He is a national authority on otoplasty and has authored several important book chapters as well as lectured on the topic of otoplasty multiple times nationally.

Dr. Mobley has made ear pinning surgery one of the key operations of his practice, bringing over a decade of experience to the many children and adults who seek him out for their procedures. Among numerous other publications on the subject, he authored the chapters on Otoplasty surgery in the 5th edition of Bailey’s Otolaryngology and the 6th edition of Cummings Otolaryngology (two foundational key textbooks used in surgical training and teaching).
