Description
Some patients with facial or other disfigurement cannot be socially rehabilitated even after appropriate plastic surgical procedure. The author has developed“Rehabili-make_”which is aiming to support social rehabilitation. “Rehabili-make”is a method not for concealing or camouflaging scars, but for helping patients not to mind their disfigurement by emphasizing their advantage on their face. The author also has devised the 10 micrometers-thick tape which is adequate for affixing it on the skin and for getting makeup on it. As an example it is shown that two female and male patients with facial scars, one female with scar of slitting her wrist and burn scar of her wrist, and one male with angioma on his face had“Rehabili-make”and that their visual analog scale for one’s own estimate of appearance and their WHO-QOL26 score indicating one’s own quality of life were improved. The author expects that“Rehabili-make”can be useful for improving a satisfaction level of appearance and quality of life, and for supporting social rehabilitation. For this purpose, collaboration with medical staff is required.
