Abstract

Reconstruction of the nose is a two-step process first the implant is. positioned, and secondly a prosthesis is made to be implanted within three months. This ensures a better cosmetic result from only two operations: the prosthesis may be better placed: and the position call be corrected. Our results suggest that a craniofacial prosthesis anchored to bone is a viable alternative to conventional prosthetic surgery, and offers considerable benefits compared With existing support systems.
