Abstract

Mid-facial surgical defects can adversely affect a patient's esthetics and psychological well-being. Fabrication of a definitive mid-facial prosthesis can be a time-consuming procedure. It is crucial to minimize the time between the tumor resection and initial prosthetic rehabilitation. This article describes a method for rapid fabrication of a transitional facial prosthesis for mid-facial defects.
