Woman smiling before facial surgery at Lehigh Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Allentown, PAThe face is quite susceptible to alterations from burns, illnesses, or illnesses and can undergo changes not only in its visual aesthetics but also in fundamental functionalities. Injuries to the facial bones and soft tissues can compromise essential actions like blinking, smiling, speaking, or eating. Our facial plastic surgeons possess the expertise to reconstruct facial structures skillfully in response to these challenges. Their aim is to enhance functionality and support you in cultivating a greater sense of comfort and confidence in your appearance.

You do not have to worry if you have strange features on your face; our surgeons can correct those using facial reconstruction surgery. When you visit us, we will discuss with you the benefits and long-term goals of this type of surgery.

The Process of Facial Reconstruction Surgery

Facial reconstruction interventions can occur in our dedicated office-based surgical facility. Preceding the surgical process, a comprehensive examination and medical history review are conducted by our surgeon. This assessment helps determine whether utilizing your tissues, such as skin or cartilage, for the reconstruction of a specific area is suitable or if opting for a prosthetic or implant is more fitting.

The well-being and comfort of the individual undergoing facial reconstruction are of utmost priority for the surgical team. Anesthesia is administered to ensure comfort during the procedure. In cases of more intricate interventions, the team may recommend general anesthesia, inducing a deep sleep state throughout the surgery.

How Long Will the Surgery Take?

Our doctors will cut and move your facial bones, tissues, blood vessels, and nerves during the surgery using different techniques. We might also take bones or tissues from other body parts to use in your face. The process usually takes about four to twelve hours, as we work carefully to ensure everything is done right and your face is restored correctly.

You can expect minimal side effects when the procedure is performed by a professional surgeon like ours. Some common side effects include minimal bleeding and scarring, which will disappear after a few days. It is crucial to contact us for more information about what this procedure entails.
