Facial reconstructive surgery is performed to restore facial features that have been disfigured or damaged by abnormal development, trauma, or other medical procedures. After an accident or disease, surgery may be done to restore both function and appearance of the face. This may include scar revision, fracture repair, laceration repair, vascular birth mark treatment, cleft lip and palate repair, surgery for craniofacial deformities, orthognathic surgery, or cancer reconstruction after a MOHS surgery.

A plastic surgery consultation with Dr. LaPatka will help decide whether you are a suitable candidate for facial reconstructive surgery and other cosmetic procedures.
