This webinar will feature a variety of cases to highlight design challenges, such as asymmetrical underlying anatomy, tissue movement, and the presence of post-surgical remnants, as well as the significance people often attach to the shape and size of the nose. Design limitations, compromises, and solutions will be discussed as they relate to sculpture development, mold design, prosthetic materials, and retentive elements. Comprehensive assessment of each patient’s needs and goals will inform these important design decisions to ensure a successful prosthetic restoration is achieved.
