    Our earFold procedure is performed in less than 20 minutes, under local anaesthesia, with immediate correction and rapid recovery. We also offer a range of other surgical techniques, for the correction of all issues relating to ear prominence. Your surgeon will be able to advise on the most appropriate treatment at your assessment.

How earFold™ works

Who is suitable for the earFold™ implant?

EarFold™ is suitable for almost every individual who suffers from prominent ears, your suitability will be assessed at your first consultation. People with prominent ears that are caused by the absence or the poor development of the anti-helical fold will benefit most from earFold™.

 

However, in some cases, prominence can also be due to a very deep conchal bowl. In such cases, earFold™ may be able to improve the prominence, but will not correct it altogether. Either way, your surgeon will take time to explain this during this initial consultation.

 

There is no upper age limit for the procedure. The procedure can be carried out on children as young as 7 years of age.

 

The earFold™ implant is also an excellent solution for people with asymmetric ears, where one ear is more prominent than the other. This is because it is possible to ensure that the right number of implants are placed in just the correct position to achieve satisfactory symmetry.

How does the earFold™ implant work?

The implant works by reshaping your ears with a simple procedure that takes just a few minutes. A local anaesthetic injection is used to completely numb the ear. The earFold™ implants are then introduced under the skin of the ear via a small incision using a specially designed medical instrument. Once in place, the implant grips the cartilage of the ear and immediately adopts the pre-decided shape.


The earFold™ implant enhances the shape of the anti-helical fold, reducing the prominence of the ear. The incision is then closed and whilst in place, the implant remolds the cartilage of the ear, allowing it to maintain its new shape and position.


The earFold™ implant is made from a super-elastic metal alloy, so your ear can still be moved in a natural way whilst the implant is in place.


What is the earFold™ implant?

The implant is made from a short strip of nitinol metal alloy. Nitinol alloy is made of two metals, titanium and nickel and is widely used in medicine, for example in self-expanding coronary stents. It is incredibly robust and consists of a curved, wafer-thin strip of metal (approximately the same thickness as a human hair) which is plated with 24-carat gold to reduce the visibility of the implant under the skin.


The earFold™ implant has undergone extensive laboratory and human clinical testing over a period of several years. You will be able to handle and inspect the implant when you visit your consultant.
