Earfold® is a small implant that is designed to reposition prominent ears quickly.

It works because the implant is curved, so after it is inserted into your ear under local anaesthetic, it springs into shape, helping to correct your ear prominence by creating or enhancing what’s known as the antihelical fold. Unlike standard otoplasty, Earfold® gives you the opportunity to choose how your ears will look BEFORE you decide whether to be treated.

Earfold® is made from the highly elastic material nitinol, which is widely used in medicine. It is coated with 24-carat gold, to reduce visibility under your skin. This procedure is carried out under local anesthetic, and is associated with a shorter recovery time than traditional protruding ear surgery. Earfold is also suitable for children aged 7 and older, and can be carried out under either local or general anaesthetic.
