BEFORE & AFTER
Who is Ash Labib?
Ash Labib was a leading cosmetics surgeon with the NHS for over 24 years specialising in Ears, Nose and Throat. When he left he went on to found AL Aesthetics and for the last 8 years he has been co-pioneering a non-Surgical rhinoplasty procedure (the 15-minute nose job) he now teaches classes, trains and lectures alongside conducting treatments and procedures.
Earfold has been formed to be a largely evasive treatment, with the typical time to complete the procedure on both ears being approximately 20 minutes, using local anaesthetic this minuscule compared to the 1-2 hours for an otoplasty procedure. Another advantage is that no large and obvious bandages are needed, simply some wound closure strips not only that but also recovery is short, and you can return to work or your child back to school once they feel comfortable.
Earfold is a curved, thin metal implant formed from a very lightweight, elastic alloy called nitinol; which its 2 main elements are titanium and nickel. These are used hugely across medical fields and are completely safe. The Earfold implant is 5mm in width and 15mm in length, the entire implant is coated in 24-carat gold this will help to decrease the chance of detection under the skin. Earfold has been successful in helping to reposition prominent ears in children 7 and over and adults and you are able to choose and determine the new position of your ears before the procedure is completed. Earfold treatment is the new way to go but contact your consultant for further information and a consultation.
Earfold was created by a company operating in the global health market called Allergan, they have helped to pioneer medical treatments based around aesthetics and have been doing so for over 35 years. This minimally invasive treatment offers many advantages opposed to traditional avenues such as surgery. The advantages include:
- A recovery time that is determined by you, you are able to return to work and or school once you’re comfortable.
- There are no heavy bandages and wraps that must be changed every so often.
- You are in control of your new look. Before the treatment you tell us how you want your ears to look.
- A quick procedure that lasts approximately 20 minutes for both ears.
- Local anaesthetic is used to conduct the procedure and helps to make you more comfortable.
