A cosmetic restoration is meant to provide a patient with a positive body image after amputation. Upper extremity limb loss can create difficult psychological disadvantages due to the visibility of the upper extremity and the constant reminder of the loss. Patients often feel as though they need to hide their prosthesis due to difficulty with visual acceptance. A custom cosmetic restoration can accomplish a visually accurate depiction of a patients sound side limb enabling him/her to feel less self conscious about a limb loss. Cosmetic restorations are most often made of silicone and are painted in layers to reflect the deep tissue impression of vascular structures and pigment colors within the layers of skin. These restorative prostheses are often very costly due to the labor intensive artistic rendering. Custom cosmetic restoration can be made for a passive or functional electric powered prosthesis.
