The EarWell Infant Ear Correction System
Designed by Texas plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Byrd, the EarWell is a soft silicone device consisting of a two-piece cradle system that is slipped over the external ear and is attached to the skin surrounding the ear by its adhesive backing. Internal retractors strategically placed inside the cradle of the EarWell apply gentle reshaping pressure on the ear over time. The adhesive lasts up to two weeks after which it is removed and a new cradle is applied. For the best results, usually three applications are necessary for a total treatment time of about 6 weeks.
When applied within the appropriate time window, this safe and comfortable ear molding system has shown to be 90% successful in correcting ear deformities.
