What is Earfold?

An Otoplasty is an operation which recreates the fold of the ear so that the ears are less prominent.

Who should have Earfold correction?

You should be fit and well, a non-vaper and a non-smoker. EarfoldR is only suitable for people who have a deficient fold at the top of the ear. It does not correct ears that stick out due to a prominent cup.

The Results

This is a very simple operation that is done under local anaesthetic (whilst awake). Prior to this cosmetic surgery you will have a chance to preview how you will look by applying clips on the outside of the ear.

This also helps to plan the correct placement of the clip to get the best
