Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct abnormalities caused by injury, disease, infection, birth defects, or aging. The goal of these procedures may be to improve function, or to restore a more normal appearance and improve self-esteem.
Your custom procedure
What you can expect with facial reconstructive surgery will depend on the procedure you are undergoing. We offer a full variety of reconstructive procedures to help restore form and function related to congenital defects, facial trauma, cancer treatment, or nerve damage. We use state-of-the-art technology and surgical techniques to help us obtain optimal outcomes in the following reconstructive procedures.
Whether they were caused by previous injuries, acne, or surgery, we offer a variety of techniques to help improve the appearance of poorly healed scars. Common techniques to improve scar appearance may include:
- Scar excision (surgical removal)
- Reorientation (small incisions to the scar)
- Medication injection
- Laser treatments
Often a combination of therapies will be employed to help maximize outcomes. In addition to aesthetics, scar revision can be used to help improve mobility and functionality if the scar is impairing function. It is important to wait until the scar has finished forming before you undergo a scar revision procedure. Scars change and evolve as the collagen production slows, which means your scar may end up much smaller than it was originally before you receive scar revision.
