Sometimes patients have part of their ear surgically removed due to skin cancer. This veteran had the lower half of his ear removed and was referred by the veteran’s hospital for a lower-half partial ear prosthesis. Anaplastologist James Hogue, MA sculpted fine detail in his preferred wax medium a beautiful rendition of the missing anatomy. He finished the prosthesis with exquisite color nuances, and very little adhesive was necessary for the patient to successfully attach his prosthesis.
