Debridement of affected parts in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma leads to large mid facial defects leading to poor quality of life due to cosmetic disfigurement and various functional comorbidities. Therefore, a surgeon should refer the patients to a prosthodontist for replacement of lost tissues to improve their function and esthetics. Two cases have been presented here with a history of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma having large, continuous defects involving nose, cheeks, and maxilla. Retaining large facial prosthesis and intraoral obturator was a challenge as supporting hard and soft tissues were less. Two-piece lightweight prostheses were fabricated and retained with the use of very economical titch buttons used (used in clothes) in case 1 due to financial constraints and slightly expensive iron boron neodymium magnets in case 2. Functional and esthetic rehabilitation was successfully achieved with intraoral and facial prostheses attached to each other.
