Reconstructive surgery involves the restoration of facial appearance and function. At Cache Valley Facial Plastics, we can help restore fractures, injuries, and deformities.
Reconstructive surgery also repairs those parts of your body affected by the disease, injury, or defects when you were born. For example, reconstructive surgery includes cleft lip and palate repair and breast reconstruction. Reconstructive means to rebuild after something has been damaged or harmed.
Reconstructive surgery can also help to alleviate breathing problems. Common causes of facial defects include:
- Fractures of Facial Bones
- Mandible Fractures
- Complex Facial Lacerations
- Head and Neck Injuries
- Nasal Deformity and Trauma
- Facial Scars/Ear Injury and Deformity
- Facial Cysts, Growths, and other Lesions
- Skin Cancer and Facial Defects from Mohs Surgery
Reconstructive surgery fixes facial fractures and trauma and addresses complex and simple facial imperfections. In addition, it repairs the skull and facial bones to address issues that result from trauma, natural origins, or illnesses.
Facial reconstructive surgery may involve several surgeries with a recovery period. You can usually go back to your normal activities after about six weeks. However, the recovery period varies depending on the type of surgical reconstruction you have and your body’s ability to heal.
Facial reconstructive surgery can enhance your bones, tendons, joints, nerves, and muscles and
improve your overall look.
If you are in good general health and do not smoke, you are a candidate for facial reconstructive surgery. Depending on the reconstructive surgery you have, it can be an in-office procedure, or you may need to spend a night or longer in a hospital.
