The EarWell® system is an ear molding system that was developed by Dr. Byrd, a highly respected pediatric plastic surgeon. Numerous clinical studies have been performed using the EarWell® system, with a 90% success rate if applied early in an infant’s life. The system must be applied by a physician. Ideally, treatment begins within the first 2 weeks of life. Applying the EarWell® is painless for the infant. The physician will have to clip some of the hair around the ear, apply a plastic adhesive base plate, mold retractors and formers to fit your infant’s ear, and apply a breathable covering. Once applied, the parents are asked to keep the device dry and monitor it for loosening. The system should not interfere with the infant’s ability to hear or his/her language development.
