PURPOSE: This study describes a nose prosthetic rehabilitation using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technology after facial disfigurement because of a total rhinectomy. METHODS: A patient with a total rhinectomy was scheduled for a nasal prosthesis. Based on the 3-D model of the patient's face reconstructed with the CT data, a four-piece mould for the nasal prosthesis was prototyped using a CAD-CAM procedure. Conventional silicone was processed with this physical mould to fabricate the definitive nasal prosthesis. RESULTS: A silicone nasal prosthesis was manufactured. The size, shape, and cosmetic look of the prosthesis were satisfactory and matched the nasal defect area well. CONCLUSIONS: The protocol presented herein illustrates favorable clinical treatment outcomes in the prosthetic rehabilitation after a total rhinectomy by means of CAD-CAM technology.
