Facial Prosthetics

Facial Prosthetics Westchester NY | White Plains NY | Yonkers NYSometimes a patient is not a candidate for reconstructive surgery. In the event of a traumatic injury, cancer resection, or congenital condition such as microtia, an alternative to surgery is prosthetic treatment. Our staff anaplastologist will custom fit, sculpt, paint, and deliver a prosthesis. She will work with each patient in one-on-one portrait sessions, and also reference photographs of the patient prior to illness or injury.
