This patient has undergone devastating ablative facial surgery for the treatment of squamous or basal cell carcinoma, and presents status post subtotal rhinectomy. Again, Medical Art Prosthetics strives to design prostheses with the patient’s best interest in mind. Fabricating a simple silicone prosthesis wouldbe much easier for us as would wishing the patient well in placing it correctly and cleaning it and their skin of adhesive residues each day. However, our clients know we explore every opportunity to simplify their life with the prosthesis even when it means a more complex design and mold are needed to accomplish this goal.
The patient easily positions a magnetic plastic substructure followed by the aesthetic prosthesis portion that is pulled securely with a little click into the correct location.
