A facial prothesis replaces missing parts of the face, for instance after an accident, after a tumor operation or if parts are missing by birth. There are epithesises for ears with or without hearing aids, for eyes (orbitaepithetics), for noses and epithesises for large defects on the lips and cheeks.
The artificial facial parts are made of medical silicone and acrylate. They are adjusted to fit perfectly the shape and match the color of the face and skin. They can be fixated with a special clue for epithesises or be anchored in implants.
