Aesthetic Prosthetics Inc. is an anaplastology practice in Pasadena, California. Anaplastologists have special training to create very realistic prostheses, as indistinguishable as possible from the real thing. Aesthetic Prosthetics creates hands, feet, fingers, ears, and other facial prostheses for those injured in war, at work, and due to accidents, burns, and wounds. They also created the customized face mask for Diana Nyad on her Xtreme Dream swim from Cuba to Florida.
Aesthetic Prosthetics’ expertise covers a range of anaplastology services where they do end-to-end prosthesis design, sculpting, and fitting. Their control of the entire process allows them to provide the most natural-looking and functional solutions possible. Knauss also works with Stefan Knauss and Gina Cohen.
