LCN - Toenail Reconstruction
We are pleased to offer a new service to those patients who present with unsightly toe nails. This service is suitable for damaged nails, fungal infected nails, psoriatic nails and nails that have re-growths after surgery. It is suitable for some diabetic patients.
The prosthetic nail is constructed from a tough but extremely flexible gel therefore suitable in footwear. It is non-porous and so the patient can shower and swim.
The nail can be cut like a normal nail and can also be varnished.
The new nail can last up to 9 months, however normally we advise replacement at 3 months. This will vary according to the condition of the presenting nail, the life style of the patient and the care taken by the patient.
