Facial Reconstruction FAQ’s

Facial reconstructive surgery is a type of plastic surgery used to restore the form and function of facial features that have been damaged due to trauma or birth defects or skin cancer. It may involve the use of implants, bone grafts, tissue expansion, and other surgical techniques.

It typically takes several weeks to recover from facial reconstruction surgery, but months for the final result.  The type of procedure, the extent of damage and other factors will determine the amount of time it takes to heal.

Facial reconstruction surgery carries risks such as scarring, infection, asymmetry and numbness. There is also the potential for a poor outcome if the procedure is not performed correctly. Finally, some procedures require multiple operations in order to achieve desired results, and there may be a long recovery period between surgeries.
