Reconstruction of Facial Skin Defects
Reconstruction of the skin and deeper tissues of the face may be necessary because of injury or following removal of skin tumors, or even with congenital facial deformities. The reconstruction usually is performed in our office or outpatient surgery suite. We usually will use tissue from an adjacent region to repair the defect so that the tissue matches the surrounding areas as closely as possible. More than one operation may be necessary to achieve the best result.
Since these reconstructions can vary depending upon the defect, we will discuss with you all of the steps planned for your reconstruction at the time of your pre-operative visit to our Office.
