In the event of a traumatic injury, cancer resection, or congenital condition such as microtia, an alternative to surgery is a prosthetic silicone restoration. Facial prosthetics are available for patients in need in of restoring underdeveloped or missing facial anatomy. Our services include prosthetic ears (auricular prostheses), prosthetic noses (nasal prostheses), and prosthetic orbits (orbital prostheses) for orbital exenteration cases.
Our team of anaplastologists, William J. Clearihue, Ph.D., CRPC, and Erin Donaldson, MA, MS, PMP, will custom fit, sculpt, paint, and deliver the most beautiful medical grade silicone prosthesis available to replicate the missing part of one’s face. The prosthesis is held on by skin adhesives or attached through osseointegrated implants. It is worn daily and typically removed at night.
