Reconstructive Facial Surgery

Reconstructive Facial Surgery

Reconstructive facial surgery is performed to repair and reshape structures affected by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infections and diseases.


Reconstructive Facial Surgery

Plastic surgeons have the techniques and ability to return the body to restore or improve appearance. Reconstructive facial surgery can be used on a wide range of conditions that are divided into two categories.

Congenital: conditions present from birth.

Acquired: conditions caused by disease – such as cancer – accident or injury, including burns.

Congential conditions range from cleft lip and palate through vascular abnormalities, such as birthmarks, and craniofacial deformities which can impact any part of the face and skull.

Surgeons employ skin grafts and flaps, precise re-sectioning of bones and soft tissue reconstruction to produce life-changing outcomes for patients with both congenital and acquired conditions. They are also skilled at managing disease conditions such as arthritis and Dupuytren’s Contracture.

Surgeons can repair bones and tissue and enhance facial features in operations that range from the simple to the complex. Most are performed under general anaesthesia and recovery times are dependent on the amount of reconstruction performed.

Techniques have advanced significantly over the last 20 years and reconstructive surgery is highly effective at improving function and enhancing well-being.
