Reconstructive surgery can fix facial fractures, facial trauma, and address everything from simple to complex facial imperfections. It focuses on repairing the skull and facial bones to address issues resulting from illness, trauma, or natural origin. If you are considering facial reconstructive surgery, you likely have questions regarding what to expect and what the procedure involves. Here, we will address those questions.
What can reconstructive surgery do for me?
Facial reconstructive surgery can enhance the functionality of bones, tendons, joints, nerves, and muscles in the face as well as improve your overall look.
Am I a candidate for facial reconstructive surgery?
Be sure you are in general good health. Smoking will not preclude you from reconstructive surgery, but choosing not to smoke will ease your recovery.
What is recovery like?
Facial reconstructive surgery usually involves several surgeries with a recovery period following each. Patients can typically go back to their normal activities after six weeks. This recovery period will vary depending on the type of surgical reconstruction you had and your body’s ability to heal. Dr. Cilento utilizes minimally invasive surgical procedures to minimize scarring.
