Is Earfold® suitable for children?


Earfold® has been designed to treat children aged seven or above effectively and quickly. Unlike traditional otoplasty surgery, children can see what their corrected ears will look like before they are treated. The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic, it typically takes about 20 minutes, and pain typically subsides in 24 - 48 hours.


“Children can certainly be treated by Earfold®. The youngest that we've treated routinely will be from the age of seven.” Mr Kang, inventor of Earfold® and Consultant Plastic Surgeon.
