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 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. After complete healing has occurred we can create the final prosthesis.
