A nose prosthesis artificially restores all or part of the nose which has been lost due to radical cancer surgery, traumatic amputation, and serious burns. The delicate remaining structures and mucous membranes lining the nasal passages must be kept moist and free from irritation. The prosthesis duplicates the function of the nose by directing air flow to the nasopharynx. It also helps to maintain proper humidity for the sinuses and respiratory mucosa. Normal speech resonance is also restored. It
provides support for eyeglasses. It also serves as a great psychological benefit in the rehabilitation of the patient.
