Cute cheerful baby.

If your newborn has an ear deformity, you are not alone. Thousands of newborns have ear deformities, and many are correctable without surgery if they are treated soon after birth. It is common for cosmetic deformities to occur because of the way your baby was positioned in the uterus during pregnancy. The soft cartilage of the ear is easily bent, and if held in a certain position long enough, it will conform to the shape it is in. That is why it is important to correct the problem as soon as possible – EarWell® infant ear correction can reshape the cartilage while it is still pliable.

Who Can EarWell Help?

EarWell is designed to correct ear deformities, where the ear is misshapen but intact, meaning all the tissues and structures are present. This is different that an ear malformation, where parts of the ear may be missing. However, in the early days of life, it can be difficult to differentiate between a minor malformation and ear deformity. It is also difficult to determine if the ear structures are compromised, or if the ear deformities will correct on their own. Consulting with a specially trained EarWell physician as soon as possible following the baby’s birth can address these concerns, determine the best course of action and begin EarWell treatment to remodel the cosmetic deformity.

How Does EarWell Work?

When your baby’s ear is folded over, scrunched up or sticking out, EarWell can help. However, time is of the essence. EarWell is only designed for babies less than three weeks of age, although slightly older infants may see some success with treatment. If you have concerns about your baby’s ears, contacting an EarWell specialist as soon as possible is the right thing to do.

EarWell is revolutionary in treating cosmetic deformities. It is painless, non-surgical and extremely effective. EarWell is a simple device that is easy for the baby to wear with minimal disruption to you or your infant’s life. It fits over your baby’s ear, gently remodeling the cartilage into a normal ear shape. Treatment takes only a short period of time, requires no anesthetic and is completely safe. It is a much safer and less stressful solution than waiting for surgery when your child is older.

If you have any doubts about the shape of your baby’s ear, contact Maia Plastic Surgery immediately for an EarWell consultation.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
