Nasal (Nose) Prosthesis
Replacing the missing nose or part of the nose due to carcinoma or accident allows for normal social interaction and allows for normal air exchange during breathing. The prosthesis can be fabricated as a “band-aid” while sufficient time passes to assure that there is no recurrence of tumor/cancer prior to reconstruction by a plastic surgeon. The prosthesis can also be done when reconstruction is not possible to allow the patient to interact in society and help restore self-image and self-confidence. We work with the patient to regain the appearance of their previous nose or improve upon their previous nose if they didn’t like the one they had before!
