Some of the most common reconstructive procedures are discussed below:
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer today with over 500,000 new cases reported in the United States every year. Skin cancer commonly occurs on the face. Mohs surgery is a treatment performed by your dermatologist that removes the cancerous growth layer by layer thus preserving the as much surrounding healthy tissue as possible, but can none-the-less leave serious cosmetic and functional repercussions when performed on the face. The goal of Mohs reconstructive surgery is to repair the damaged tissue while restoring any lost function all while achieving a cosmetic outcome that preserves each patient’s natural appearance as much as possible.
Nasal Fracture & Reconstruction
Fractures to the nasal bones are the third most common type of fracture. While surgery is not always needed, in many cases treatment will be required to restore the appearance of the nose as well as correct any nasal airway obstruction that may have resulted from the injury.
Scars are a normal byproduct of your body’s natural healing process but can be problematic on the face when they grow too much as with hypertrophic scars or keloids, when they are in aesthetically disfiguring, or cause functional impairment. Scar revision attempts to improve the appearance of scars by a combination of surgical and non-surgical techniques that can help hide or otherwise improve the appearance and function of scarring affecting the head and neck region.
