Clinical Art Technology

The use of scanning and milling technology has been incorporated into our treatment process. Certain anatomical models of the patient can be digitized and used to re-create the mirror imaged, missing structure. This highly accurate process streamlines certain treatment plans. It is especially helpful in auricular prostheses.

Sculpting and design of your prosthesis: Fractions of a millimeter make the difference between a good fit and a great fit, and finessing the mold in such tiny increments is an intuitive process that is crucial to success in facial anaplastology.

Life-like silicones: Prosthetic materials are diverse and are selected in view of the method of attachment, durability concerns, tissue mobility, etc. Experience through specialization has been the key to our success in combining materials and offering some of the most innovative and life-like outcomes available.

Look closely: This prosthesis demonstrates an experimental treatment. As independent career facial anaplastologists we enjoy the enrichment of daily experimentation and discovery that benefits all of our patients.

An alternative to adhesive or implants: Another option for retaining an orbital prosthesis is via glasses. This method requires no use of adhesive or surgery for implants. The prosthesis is permanently attached to glasses and comfortably rests into place.

Another user-friendly design slips in and stays put-No surgery, No glue, extremely lightweight, and comfortable. A MAP technique developed and published in 1995.

Ultra lightweight silicone/polyurethane prosthesis attaches securely with bifaced medical adhesive tape.

We are often contacted to provide nasal prostheses after our client has had their nose removed and is still healing or undergoing treatment. However, we prefer if possible to see the patient prior to surgery and prepare a hollow lightweight nasal form that can be gently taped into place. This helps because the patient has something comfortable and protective to wear almost immediately after surgery. The cover might also reflect the correct size and shape of their nose. Then, after complete healing has occurred we can create the final prosthesis.
