How Does Head & Neck Reconstruction Work?
Plastic surgery for the head and neck encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to restore a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies.

What Results Will I See?*

While some patients can get the results they want with a single procedure, many require a multi-faceted approach to achieve an optimal outcome. Projected results will be discussed with you prior to treatment to help you through the decision-making process. However, the majority of head and neck reconstruction patients report a high satisfaction rate for a lifetime to come.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Recovery after your reconstruction can significantly vary according to the extent of your procedure. Your surgeon will walk you through every aspect of your upcoming procedure in-depth at the time of your consultation. Individualized post-operative recovery plans are also developed based on your procedure.
