      Abstract

      For a patient with a total nasal defect, an esthetic prosthesis remains the optimal choice for enhancing quality of life. This technique describes a fully digital workflow for designing virtual patterns and negative molds for a nasal prosthesis. This fully digital workflow facilitated the provision of an esthetic prosthesis.
