Rehabilitating

ANaplastologie - Rehabilitating .
.
Building up a relationship of trust with the patient and, together with the surgeon, medical team and facial prosthetist, planning the best rehabilitation possible for each person while integrating state-of-the-art techniques. 






Rehabilitation using a facial prosthesis is indicated when there is a loss of facial matter mainly due to:
- congenital malformation (e.g. of the ear pinna)
- an accident (burns or trauma)
- the aftermath of a tumour.
To restore the entire face, we make a totally realistic, made-to-measure prosthesis (or epithesis) out of flexible silicone. We work on the colour and texture to make it as life-like as possible, closely imitating the patient's skin colouring. The result is an aesthetic prosthesis which is easy to use and clean. We also propose the most appropriate and secure means of fixing the prosthesis.
This epithesis becomes part and parcel of our patients' lives, giving them self-confidence and enabling them to live and work normally, and play sport.

To inform and to testify

We designed this website in order to inform you, to answer your questions and to share with you updated news in the field of anaplastology.

Special thanks to our patients who share their experience with you on this site and who have graciously accepted to appear in the photographic references. They allow numerous patients to understand the different options of facial rehabilitation.

Imitating skin

 
Skin covers us, protects us and acts as our interface with the outside world. Our facial skin is marked with expression lines which reveal our emotions and reflect our moods. Our self-image is not only important to us, but also communicates itself to others. More than ever, our appearance is of paramount importance today. 
This is why as prosthetists, we take particular care of making sure our epitheses imitate the texture, colouring and translucency each patient's skin.

Exploring

Curiosity has led us to discover what is happening on a broader scale and has increasingly led us to explore new horizons with researchers and exchange information with our colleagues worldwide through international congresses. We attend congresses on a regular basis so that we can take on board the latest innovations for our patients.
