This surgery is not just cosmetic in nature. It takes into account the function of the face as well. For this reason, only a specialist like Dr. Dutton should be consulted for such an important and meticulous procedure.
Whether you are seeking cancer reconstruction or correction of an injury or defect, Dr. Dutton can correct structural deformities and provide you with a medically sound and aesthetic outcome.
Benefits of Facial Reconstruction
Facial reconstructive surgery can correct most head and neck abnormalities for a more attractive appearance, as well as improved function. These include corrections/repairs to the face, neck, cheeks, chin, scalp, nose, lips, mouth, tongue, eye sockets, eyelids, and ears.
The goal is to restore a symmetrical, harmonious look to the face, while also restoring your ability to breathe, chew, swallow, or perform other facial functions.
The Facial Reconstruction Procedure
Facial reconstruction is a highly personalized surgery that addresses your specific issues. No two surgeries follow the same plan. Dr. Dutton will review your case with you thoroughly so that you understand everything that will take place during your surgery and the results you can expect.
If you have had cancer, he will consult with your oncologist to make sure that your surgical plan is safe for you.
Dr. Dutton makes every effort to keep incisions small, at a minimum, and in discreet locations.
The techniques used in a facial reconstruction may sometimes echo those used in cosmetic procedures such as eyelid surgery, cosmetic rhinoplasty, chin implants, brow lift, or scar revision.
Facial Reconstruction Recovery
Since every facial reconstruction surgery is different, the length of time you will need to recover will depend on the extent of your procedure. Dr. Dutton will advise you how much time you should take off from work and what you can expect during your recovery period. You will be given complete post-operative instructions, and your progress will be monitored in follow-up appointments.
