Regenerative Medicine Approach to Nasal Reconstruction


About this study

The objective of this study is the application of regenerative medicine techniques for advanced and individualized nasal reconstruction. Using pre-operative 3D facial scanning, the patient can choose the desired nose shape. The data can then be used to create patient-specific templates for both the nasal tip reconstruction mold and the skin/soft tissue reconstruction template.
