Our laboratory works with Christian Bujeaud, an epithetics specialist, who can provide treatment for any patients requiring an epithesis. The face: a visual story. It is often said that “the face is the window to the soul”. It’s true: it plays a key role in everyday social and emotional interactions. It can darken and brighten. It can reflect our emotional state: concentration, anger, joy, well-being and more.
It plays a key role in the way we develop and maintain relationships with other people. Modern day society puts particular emphasis on our physical appearance. It struggles to accept damaged bodies. After an illness, agenesis or a serious injury, it can be difficult to accept this new reality in social, emotional and professional situations. It can become almost impossible to recognize the person that other people see.
An epithesis, or facial prosthesis, is a solution that may help you to embrace your appearance.
What is an epithesis? Made of silicone, an epithesis is a craniofacial prosthesis that can replace a nose (nasal pyramid), an ear (auricular epithesis), an eye (orbital epithesis) or a part of the face (hemifacial epithesis). For more information, visit his site.
