We renew the natural you with Nasal (Nose) Prosthetics with personalized care and precision medical artistry.

Rhinectomy (surgical removal of the nose) often occurs as a necessary treatment in the eradication of malignant neoplasms (skin cancers) such as basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas or malignant melanomas. Malignant tumors or mucormycosis (fungal infection) may also arise in the bone or the cavities (sinuses) near the nose requiring surgery that involves the nose. Mohs surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and plastic surgeons often refer patients to us to consider a nose prosthesis or other nasal or midfacial prosthesis.

A nose prosthesis can also correct saddle nose deformity which is sometimes caused by nasal granulomatosis, formerly called Wegener’s granulomatosis. A nose prosthesis is also an appropriate prosthetic replacement of the nasal tissues following trauma such as bite wounds or gunshot wounds or motor vehicle accidents (MVAs). We also make nasal prostheses for the correction of defects secondary to chronic substance abuse or for other acquired nasal deformities.

Quality Matters in Nasal Prosthetics

Our design sessions to create your nose prosthesis are comfortable, because our specialized environment is quiet, relaxed and conducive to the unique creative technical process. As medical artists and anaplastologists we thrive in these optimal conditions that result in high quality prosthetic outcomes. Many patients visit us from other countries for the unique process and quality nasal prostheses you see in our galleries. We can create for you a life-like, natural-looking new nasal prosthesis to wear with confidence.

Nose Prosthetics for Rhinectomy and Deformity Correction

After many individuals have their nasal surgery and initial nasal prosthesis from their treating medical/dental center many patients are not completely happy with their nasal restoration. They want a better color match, a better fitting nasal prosthesis, or there are other issues with the nose prosthesis. You too might have received your first prosthesis from someone who does not really specialize in nasal and facial prosthetics. This is not anyone’s fault, and you always have the option to improve your nasal prosthesis. If you are ready for your first experience in restoring your nose or are ready for a new improved version of your nasal prosthesis, then we are here as specialists to address all your concerns from shape and color aesthetics, retention strategy, or anything that concerns you. A thorough discussion of your goals and expectations about your silicone nasal restoration is important for your long term success.

Avoidable Suboptimal Prostheses

Visualize the Difference Retainment Options

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.

Our Prosthesis Process

Nasal prosthetics is a learned specialty like any other that begins with basic materials and skills. New scanners and 3D printers now impressively capture soft tissue contour and create working models that represent a very accurate snapshot of nasal form. But that is a static moment. What happens to the prosthesis modeled on that contour when the patient smiles?

Many adjustments are made while observing the patient in different expressions, and retention strategies employed to make a prosthesis elegantly simple and successful.  Our experience also guides the design in order to anticipate margin distortion over time and coloration is sealed deep for naturalism and durability.

Dear Greg and Jim,

There really is no way to thank you for what you have done for my mom. She wants to take the family all out for Japanese food tomorrow night, something she has been too uncomfortable to do for two years. I thought you might like to see this photo.

Thank you both from the bottom of my heart.
