Facial defects resulting from neoplasm, congenital malformation, or trauma can be restored with facial prosthesis using different materials and retention methods to achieve the life-like appearance and facilitate function. A facial prosthesis can re-establish esthetic form and anatomic contours for midfacial defects, often more effectively than by surgical reconstruction. For successful results, a lot of factors such as harmony, texture, color matching, and blending of tissue interface with the prosthesis are important. This case report describes a novel approach to rehabilitate a patient who had underwent partial rhinectomy as a result of hemangiopericytoma of the nose. This article explains the construction of partial facial mask, which restored the defect involving the left lateral aspect of the nose, medial aspect of the left eye, and the part of the cheek.
