Prominent ear correction (Earfold procedure)

Summary

Prominent ear correction (Earfold procedure)

The Earfold procedure (earFoldTM) is a relatively new treatment option – compared to Pinnaplasty or Otoplasty) to correct prominent ears. This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and involves small incisions (often two in each ear) through which 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, is slipped under the skin. When the implant has been released, it grips the cartilage of the ear and immediately folds it into the pre-determined required shape. The procedure normally takes a few minutes and the patient is allowed to go home shortly afterwards
