Congetital Deformity Treatment Salt Lake City
Along with his expertise in cosmetic facial procedures and surgery, Dr. Thompson also specializes in reconstruction of the face. He manages everything from simple lacerations to complex facial fractures and congenital deformities.
One particular area of interest for Dr. Thompson is microtia reconstruction. Microtia, or congenital malformation of the ear, is a relatively uncommon problem in the United States, but much more common in several South American countries. Since these patients are born without an ear, or only a small remnant, reconstruction is a multi-stage endeavor that requires patience and dedication by both the surgeon and the patient. A few pictures are included below. For more information about our HUGS foundation please visit helpusgivesmiles.org or talk to Dr. Thompson directly. Our organization is dedicated to improving the lives of children, and we invite you to consider making a donation to this worthy cause with the assurance that all funds are used to directly benefit underserved children.
