Earfold® - An innovative treatment


Earfold® is an alternative treatment for prominent ears, which is thought to affect 1-2% of the UK population. A minimally invasive implant that corrects prominent ears simply with a short recovery compared to otoplasty. Earfold® is suitable for adults and children aged seven or above and means:  

  • Short recovery – no bandages so you can return to work as soon as you feel comfortable
  • You can choose the position of your ears BEFORE treatment
  • Fast treatment – the procedure typically takes about 20 minutes for both ears
  • The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic

“I wanted my ears flat against my head but you ultimately decide if you want it a little bit back. It's so adjustable and it's so quick. You have ultimate control of how you look.” Kathleen, 26


Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their ears. This can lead to reduced self-confidence which affects their social life. Children in particular can be affected as they can suffer from teasing at school. That’s why Earfold® was invented, to quickly and effectively correct prominent ears.
