Ear molding for wavy or curly ear cartilage
Ear molding is usually started before 1 month of age for best results and lasts about 6 weeks.
We perform ear molding at our office and have gotten great natural-appearing results with no surgery. Click on the link below for before and after photos.
EarWell treatment for curly ear cartilage
I recommend that you seek out an EarWell physician who can assist you with treatment as soon as possible. The EarWell Infant Ear Correction Device is definitely an option to correct both the curly part of your daughter's helical rim (the outside curve of the ear), plus the conchal crus (the horizontal strip of raised cartilage in the centre of the ear). Because the EarWell device is most effective in the first days or weeks of life it is important to seek an appointment as soon as you can, because delaying treatment will reduce the effectiveness of treatment and will increase the length of time that the ear molding needs to be conducted for. Good luck with your search.
