What is EarWell?

EarWell is a non-surgical Ear Correction System in Atlanta that corrects infant ear deformities. This procedure is not meant for adults but for young infants who have misshapen ears. The device works to improve the ear shape to improve the child’s appearance.

This treatment is recommended before your child turns six weeks old. When a child is born, it is common for them to have an excess amount of estrogen. Estrogen increases the flexibility and moldability of cartilage. By the sixth week, the infant’s hormone levels should become balanced out and non-invasive treatments like the EarWell device will not be able to help correct distortion. At this point, the ears will need to be allowed to develop on their own without surgical intervention.

Until the child is older, no surgical treatment can be done to correct the ears. Although these deformities can cause the ears to appear misshapen and aesthetically displeasing, they are fairly correctable at a young age. If you suspect your child’s ear to be deformed, don’t hesitate. Schedule a consultation with us at Arslanian Plastic Surgery.

What are the benefits of EarWell?

There are many advantages to choosing an EarWell device over a surgical procedure. The EarWell device is suitable for children as young as three days old and causes no pain. The EarWell infant ear correction system is made to improve the outer, and exterior ear tissue. 

This device has been very successful and consistently corrects the majority of ear abnormalities. Even if EarWell is unable to correct ear deformities, the majority of irregularities can be improved with surgery once the child hits the age of five.

More amazing benefits include:

  • Non-surgical solution
  • Early intervention
  • Effective results
  • Customized treatment
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Short treatment duration

It should be noted that EarWell cannot help correct severe deformities such as cryptotia (when the ear is not separate from the head) or microtia (when the external ear is not developed).

Who are the best candidates for the EarWell procedure?

Many forms of external ear deformity make a child a candidate for EarWell in Atlanta, these deformities include:

  • Helical Rim: This irregularity occurs along the upper, outside fold of the ear. This deformity appears as a fold.
  • Prominent Ear: As mentioned above, this is when the ears stick out from the head and protrude outwards. The ears can be brought closer to the head with the EarWell device.
  • Conchal Crus: This deformity is caused by the division of the concha. The ear will have a fold that appears to separate into two sections top and bottom.
  • Cup Ear: This also occurs along the helical rim and may include the scapha. The upper ear will have excess tissue that folds over to create a long rim of the upper ear.
  • Stahl’s Ear: This irregularity is often referred to as an “elf ear”. The upper ear will be flat without any rim or light fold along the edge.
  • Lidding: The upper part of the ear, the helical rim, will be folded over.

First Steps

What’s the first step?

​​The first step to EarWell surgery in Atlanta is a personal meeting with Dr. Brian Arslanian. In this meeting, he will ask you about your concerns and examine your infant’s ears. If the EarWell device is determined to be a good option for your child, Dr. Arslanian will explain the EarWell device, how it functions, and how long it will take to improve the ear structure. Once approved we can start the EarWell treatment day off, while follow-up appointments every few days will help him ensure it is improving your child’s ears.

Why Choose Earwell?

Traditional ear corrective surgeries are invasive and may not be recommended for younger patients. One of the greatest advantages of the EarWell device is that it provides results non-invasively. Ear deformity doesn’t have to have a scary or invasive solution, EarWell will gradually correct the ears to their natural shape with ease.

What to expect on the day of EarWell surgery

On the day of your Atlanta EarWell treatment, we will welcome you and your child to our office with open arms, comfort, and professionalism. The EarWell device will not hurt your infant. The device is secured around the ears with an adhesive and will look similar to earmuffs. The device has thick plastic around the edges to help mold the ears.

An EarWell device will not interfere with your child’s hearing. The device has a thin, perforated layer of plastic that lays over the ear. You will need to be careful not to get the device wet as this will interfere with the adhesive.

Follow-up appointments will help Dr. Arslanian ensure the device is secure and is effectively correcting your child’s ear deformity. These check-ups will also help Dr. Arslanian know when the ears are improved, and the devices can be removed.

EarWell recovery

By the end of the treatment period, the child’s ears should be sculpted to a normal shape. The results should be long-lasting, particularly if the ears are sculpted before the infant’s hormone levels balance out. By correcting the ears before estrogen levels have decreased, the ears will be sculpted and solidified into their new shape.
