Nasal Prosthesis

A nasal (nose) prosthesis artificially restores all or part of the nose which has been lost due to radical cancer surgery, traumatic amputation, and serious burns. The prosthetic nose not only restores a normal appearance to the face, but it also has a practical purpose in that it moisturizes the air coming in through the nose and filters the debris out. The delicate remaining structures and mucous membranes lining the nasal passages must be kept moist and free from irritation. The prosthesis also duplicates the function of the nose by directing air flow to the nasopharynx; helps to maintain proper humidity for the sinuses and respiratory mucosa; and restores normal speech resonance. Additionally, it provides support for eyeglasses.

The staff at the International Prosthetic Eye Center has a combined clinical experience of over 10 years. With this experience, it is possible to use methods and materials available today to create extremely realistic prosthetic ears allowing the anaplastologist to restore the loss to its natural appearance in match and mobility.

For the convenience of our patients, we offer a 7 night stay a hotel nearby to the center for the duration of their treatment ( at very minimal cost).

From the moment you contact the Center, to the three day appointments for the custom impression/ mold, custom coloring and veining, delivery and adjustments of your ocular artificial eye or scleral shell and the prosthetic eye care needed for your new prosthetic eye, our center strives to give you the highest attention, care and respect you deserve.

Please feel free to call the center for an appointment or for a personal consultation concerning artificial plastic eyes. We will be more than happy to speak to you personally to answer any questions you have as it relates to artificial eyes and procedures.
