Reconstructive face surgery

Surgical procedures aimed at restoring facial structures damaged by burns, trauma and surgical removal.

WHEN RECONSTRUCTION IS NECESSARY

The damage of a part of the face inevitably creates a serious damage both aesthetically and psychological, as well as functional.

Reconstructive surgery, thanks to the enormous progress made over the decades, is now able to bring the face back to normal. Thanks to refined and precise techniques, both the functionality and the aesthetic aspect of the lost structures are restored.

Indications for reconstructive surgery

Traumas, burns, removal of skin tumors, or underlying bone structures may require reconstructive surgery to restore the inevitably compromised shape or function.

Treatment areas

Modern reconstructive surgery allows you to act profitably on the following areas of the face:

  • Nose
  • Oral cavity and tongue
  • Lips
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Forehead
  • Eyes
  • Scalp

Available reconstruction options

Each removed part is restored with different surgical techniques, also considering the extension of the portion to be reconstructed.

Removal of small entities

The surgeon will always try to minimize the outcome of the reconstruction, also using techniques and materials specific to medicine and cosmetic surgery. For example, absorbable or removable suture threads (removed after a few days), will be used.
In order to reconstruct limited areas of the face, generally tissue flaps taken locally or skin grafts are used.

Extended removal

For the reconstruction of large portions of tissue there is a tendency to resort to the microsurgical flaps at a distance, i.e. taking the tissue from an area of the body far from the implant site. This procedure has long been used with success in post-mastectomy breast reconstruction operations.
The implantation of portions of muscle is also considered for reconstruction, for example, a tongue that has undergone major demolitions.
Whatever the site of implantation, the tissue taken for reconstruction is reshaped to be as similar as possible to the removed structure.
