    Low cost silicone finger prosthetic?

    Hi, i lost the distal tip of my finger. I've functioned fine for years but am tired of the questions and looks. I have saved up a little and want to get a tip for cosmetic reasons. This is an old injury insurance was settled years ago so i have to come out of pocket.

    Ive been getting real stressed with finding companies in my state or nearby. Its even more exhausting when you want a rough estimate and you cant even get without setting up an appointment. One company that was extremely kind told me over 6k and there was no difference in cost for a whole finger and the less than an inch i need. I only have 4,000 but they seem like they'll do arrangements for the rest. Anyone know of any lower cost options or any programs that help pay for such. If not any advice for my lowest cost solution and companies in Georgia or Carolina? One exhausting occurrence is 1 company has like 4 different webpages under different names. I dont have much money or time so im searching for the most realistic finger i can get with the small amount i have. thank you
