Caring for your Ear Prosthesis
Generally, silicone prostheses are 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. We schedule a follow-up consultation after delivery of your prosthesis to ensure your comfort with long-term 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.
