Custom RealLifeSkin™ nasal prostheses are designed from several exclusive technologies only available at the Real Life Center: The outer hyper-life-like RealLifeSkin™ prosthetic skin, the sub-dermal Intra-Anatomy™, prosthetic sinus cavities and an Intra-sinus particle filter. These technologies are profiled in the Technologies section of the website. Nose Prosthesis Retention Retention of RealLifeSkin™ nose prostheses is accomplished by use of our patented Intra-Anatomy™ (also called Internal Fixation Retention- IFR), osseointegration, medical adhesive, use of eye glasses, or a combination of these methods. The above diagram depicts the use of osseointegration, and the Intra-Anatomy™ retention methods. These methods may or may not be used together. During the first Prosthetic Clinic visit, each patient is evaluated individually to best determine which prosthetic retention method or combination of methods is best for them. Many patients email photographs for a pre-evaluation in order to save on travel resources this can be done through the online Contact Form found under the Contact section, or by clicking on the email hyperlink at the bottom of the page or simply call the Center on the toll-free number.
