Dr. Niamtu Interviewed on CBS 8 Morning Show 1-24-17

A local news story about a adolescent who was bullied about her protruding ears has expanded into the national and international media.  This story about Dr. Niamtu correcting the protruding ears of a young patient has been featured in hundreds of media outlets including Inside Edition, The Talk on CBS, The New Your Post, The London Daily Mail, Bild (Germany’s largest daily newspaper) and I have had numerous interviews from as far away as Australia.

This subject is sensitive on several levels, namely the damaging effects of bullying and the question “should children undergo plastic or cosmetic surgery?  The response has been very overwhelmingly positive for doing this type of procedure on children to prevent negative body image or self-confidence issues from bullying.  There have also been critical responses stating that everyone should merely love themselves.  Although I respect the views of everyone, I have seen the negative effects of bullying for facial deformities on both patients and their families and I don’t think this is any different than children having orthodontics to correct crooked teeth.

It has truly been my honor, and that of my awesome staff to assist this family and many others over the years in this manner.

The Talk

It was my honor to help this beautiful young lady to escape the effect of peer bullying from her protruding ears.  Even small facial deformities can produce very negative psychological consequences in childhood that can lead to a lifetime of low self-esteem and negative body image.  My biggest reward is to see the positive personality effects and improvement of body image and self-confidence in these wonderful patients.  I have the best job in the world as I love doing surgery and making people look and feel better.  Many times it is merely vanity surgery but in cases like this, it can be life changing.   Click below to see the recent news story on ABC news.

I was honored to have been interviewed by Modern Aesthetics at the Cosmetic Surgery Forum in Las Vegas.  I have to admit, his first question sort of caught me by surprise 🙂

I have treated tens of thousands of patients over my career and Davette Hayes is one of the strongest, courageous and most beautiful people that I have ever met.  She is truly one of my heroes.  She was violently attacked with a machete in a domestic violence incident.  The surgeons at VCU Medical Center saved her life and her hand.  I have had the pleasure of treating Davette for the past several years to improve her facial scars and disfigurement.  We are treating her free of  charge and her presence lights  up our office and brightens our day.    Her resolve to heal (internally and externally) is amazing and I think she will devote her life to assisting other domestic violence victims and survivors.  It is truly our pleasure to assist her.

Dr. Joe Niamtu, III is a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon with a practice limited to cosmetic facial surgery.  He is a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and on their board of directors.
