Abstract

Loss of facial organs in an individual may be developmental anomalies or acquired. The missing parts of the
face ear, eyes and nose are considered as maxillofacial defects which can be rehabilitated by the prosthesis
and/or cosmetic surgeries. This art of science has developed into a more reliable and predictable process due
to ever increasing development of materials and equipment used in the procedure. This article describes a
simple technique to rehabilitate patients with auricular defects which are both aesthetically acceptable and
economical for the individual.
