Prominent Ear Correction Using the Earfold Device
The Earfold is latest technology to create folds in a prominent ear, also known as big ears, bat ears, or sticky out ears. It is a revolutionary technique that is quick and effective when compared to traditional pinnaplasty (ear correction) procedures.
Prominent ears can be so for one of two reasons. The most common reason is the failure of the development of a anti-helical fold. The anti-helical fold is the natural fold of the ear that is flat in patients with prominent ears. The Earfold will address this issue immediately and effectively. The other reason to have prominent ears is a deep bowl of the ear, called the concha. This can separate to the lack of the anti-helical fold or combined. The deep conchal bowl can only be treated using a traditional pinnaplasty procedure. Mr Souéid uses the Prefold as part of his consultations. The Prefold is exactly the same as the Earfold but designed to be applies to the outside of the ear, thus giving the same result as the earfold and gives the patient the chance to actually visualise how the ear will look with an Earfold device.
