Embracing twenty years’ experience, research and development, the specialist silicone team at Dorset Orthopaedic provide an extensive range of market-leading lower limb cosmeses, designed to meet individual needs. Whether function and durability, design or cosmetic appearance is your primary concern, our technicians are available to recommend and design the perfect cosmesis for you.

Dorset Orthopaedic’s lower limb silicone cosmeses are available for all levels of amputation from below knee to above knee and hip disarticulation. The experienced and talented team can provide silicone solutions for a wide range of prosthetic devices built to accommodate many types of surgery, including Osseointegration & Van Nes Rotationplasty.

We have five main products with varying features and levels of cosmetic detail, catering for an array of requirements and budgets. Whether you would like to swim with your cosmesis, go to the gym, look great for a special occasion or make a statement, the possible designs are endless.

Bespoke silicone cosmeses are available in three ranges with varying levels of cosmetic detail: Single Colour, Tri Colour and Multi Colour. Each and every product is custom made, sculpted by hand to mirror the volume, skin and nail characteristics of your sound side or a foot of your choice.

The Single Colour Cosmesis, as the product name describes, is made from one skin tone chosen from a set of 66 swatches and one base nail colour. To facilitate the creation of our extremely lifelike Tri and Multi Colour Cosmeses a silicone appointment is made for you. During a Tri Colour silicone appointment you have the opportunity to combine three custom mixed skin tones, choose two colours for your nails and add hair. The Multi Colour Cosmesis is our highest definition product. During your appointment all the colours needed to provide the finest lifelike finish are mixed and confirmed with you. Every detail imaginable that forms an integral part of your limb – for example hair, freckles, moles, veins and even tattoos can be incorporated in your cosmesis.
