Non-Surgical Correction of Ear Deformities

Congenital ear deformities are common among newborns and are unlikely to get better on their own. It is common for parents to have some conflicting emotions about this corrective procedure, but a few weeks of treatment now can give your child permanent outer ear improvement for the rest of their life. This will help with their self esteem and self image. Ear molding is a safe and effective, painless process that will help your child’s ear form a normal shape. It is covered by most insurance carriers.

The time is NOW to permanently improve your child’s ears. If the ear deformity is not corrected as a newborn, then he/she will need to wait until the age of 4-5 years old to undergo one, maybe multiple painful surgeries to correct the deformity. While it is not an emergency, time is an important factor in this process as molding becomes less effective as time progresses.

Ideally molding should begin before 2 weeks of age which yields a 90% success rate. Starting at 6 weeks old can still be successful, but the rate for complete correction drops to 50%.

Your newborns ear cartilage is very soft at birth due to the presence of high levels of maternal estrogen present in newborns. The cartilage begins to stiffen as the child’s estrogen levels begin to decrease.
