Finding out your infant has an ear deformity can be alarming. Will this affect their hearing? Will they be self-conscious in the future? Will they need surgery? These are all sensible questions to ask. When it comes to outer ear deformities, they do not often affect hearing. However they may cause self-consciousness in the future. Thankfully, there is a non-surgical solution for infant ear deformities: the Earwell™ Infant Ear Correction System.
What is The Earwell™ system?
Ear deformities can frequently occur in newborns. Before the The Earwell™ system, physicians let these deformities try to correct themselves. This could lead to a correction surgery in the future. EarWell™ can help to correct an array of ear deformities (for infants less than 6 weeks old), including Stahl’s ear, cup ear, lop ear, lidding, helical compression, and conchal crus. The earlier this system is used, the better the results.
The Four Parts
The EarWell™ system includes four parts: a posterior shell that fits over the ear, a retractor that shapes the rim of the ear, a conchal former that shapes the center of the ear, and an anterior shell that holds all of the parts together. When wearing this system, your infant’s ears can be corrected in no time. In fact, over 90% of babies treated with this system have seen good to excellent results!
