Many of our patients here at Main Line Plastic Surgery are not that concerned about looking younger, but just want to look like themselves again after an accident or illness. Dr. Raymond D. Jean performs facial reconstruction on those individuals in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, Abington, Upper Darby, Wayne, Bucks County, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania who simply want to restore their old appearance.
What Is Facial Reconstruction?
Facial reconstruction is a category of cosmetic surgery that focuses on rebuilding or reshaping certain areas of the face that have become damaged due to trauma, illness, or birth defect. Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Raymond D. Jean is highly skilled at transforming patients so they look as good as new (or sometimes even better)!
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Reconstruction?
Facial reconstruction is something you may want to consider if you are bothered by an abnormality in your face, or find that certain defects interfere with the way you function. Accident victims, as well as service members who were injured in war often, desire facial reconstruction to help reduce or reduce the effects of their injury.
Planning Your Facial Reconstruction Treatment
Dr. Jean will perform a thorough analysis that may include taking X-rays, photographs, or drawings of your face. This will allow him to come up with a customized treatment plan, which he will then share with you in greater detail.
Facial reconstruction must sometimes be performed in stages. If that is the case, Dr. Jean will provide you with a timeline for treatment so you can better plan your recovery.
How Is Facial Reconstruction Performed?
The number of possible techniques that may be used in facial reconstruction are too numerous to mention here. Once Dr. Jean determines how he will perform your reconstruction, he can then provide you with more specific details.
What to Expect* after Facial Reconstruction
You will typically notice some improvement right away and will feel more confident as a result.
Recovering from Facial Reconstruction
Depending upon the surgical technique used, you may need to wear a gauze bandage or take over-the-counter medication to help manage your discomfort. We will provide you with a list of instructions to follow concerning aftercare, including a timeline for follow-up appointments.
Don’t put off having facial reconstruction performed if you are suffering from a deformity or have abnormal facial features. It has radically changed the lives of many patients in the Philadelphia area, and it can dramatically alter yours in a positive way as well.
