Designing nasal prostheses can be challenging due to the unpaired nature of the facial feature especially in cases with insufficient preoperative information. Various nose model databases have been suggested as a helpful starting point for computer-aided design of nasal prostheses however these do not appear to be readily accessible. Therefore, an open-access digital database of nose models has been generated based on a 3D Morphable Face Model approach. This manuscript describes the generation of the database, highlights steps for designing a nasal prosthesis, and signposts readers to the database for future clinical and research work.
