Restoring Confidence with Lifelike Prosthetics

Caring for your Prosthesis

Generally, a silicone prosthesis is removed daily to be cleaned, and to allow for cleaning of the underlying skin. We provide our patients with personalized instructions for daily wear and care. Our prostheses are easily cleaned with isopropyl alcohol, foamed ethyl alcohol or dye-free dish soap. Periodic replacements are necessary to maintain acceptable aesthetics and hygiene of the prosthesis and underlying tissue. We ask our patients not to experiment with products without checking with our office.

Wear and Care Instructions

Our wear and care instructions have been developed for Medical Art Resources prostheses only. Because materials and processes vary, patients whose prostheses were made elsewhere should not use our instructions.
