EarWell ear correction in babies2024-05-13T14:46:41+00:00

MOOI ears, without surgery, for the rest of their lives!

In the Netherlands, 33% of babies are born with, to a greater or lesser extent, an abnormality in the shape of the ears. Protruding ears, or floppy ears, are most common. Other ear abnormalities often occur in the auricle, such as a folded ear or a deformity in the outer edge of the ear. Meanwhile, there is a solution to fix many ear defects in newborn babies: EarWell. At MOOI Clinic, we offer this treatment, that allows babies’ ears to be corrected at an early age which will prevent surgery later in life. This treatment takes place with the EarWell system and doesn’t involve surgery. For more information on treatment, also check out the Earwell.com website.

The consultation and treatment at the plastic surgeon’s office

At the first consultation, the ears will be assessed and treatment can also be started immediately. The treatment consists of applying the EarWell system. This ensures that your baby’s ears are shaped correctly and in this way corrects the defect.

Duration of treatment:

The average duration of the treatment is 4-8 weeks. After two weeks, the system will be replaced with a new system.

Aftercare and recovery

The treatment has a 95% success rate, it is painless and there are no risks to your baby; however, it is important to start treatment early. Preferably in the 2nd or 3rd week after birth. Your baby’s ears may need to be taped for several weeks after the EarWell system is removed. There is no real “recovery,” but there is aftercare during treatment.

Experience of other parents

Our little son had two uneven ears. He had a small defect in the helix rim of his right ear and on both ears his earlobes were very forward. We had his ears treated. As a baby, he would not notice anything about this ear correction, and later in life he would only benefit from his beautiful ears. We are very happy with the result! Read our experience here.
