Head and neck reconstruction surgery are typically performed to address aesthetic and functional abnormalities of the face, skull, jaws, and ears. In some instances, surgery is done when wounds do not heal as expected or when there are existing defects. To get the best services to visit our surgeons.
Our surgeons discourage patients from any heavy lifting. If you wear glasses, you may require some alterations if applicable. We provide you with pain medications, ointments, and nasal sprays, all to help maximize your results. Our dentists will then see you in visitations two weeks later, and then one month after that our doctor enjoys the continued visitation of his patients and will see them in follow-up for many years thereafter.
Head and neck reconstruction procedure
Many techniques can be used to reconstruct the head and neck. These include moving the sides of the defect together (primary closure), transfer of tissue from near the area of repair (local flaps), moving skin or cartilage from another area to the area to be repaired (free grafting), and taking bone or muscle from another area with its veins and arteries and using this tissue to replace the structures that have been removed from the reconstruction site.
Some risks are Anesthesia: Depending on the type of anesthesia administered, patients may react. This is exceedingly rare, and it is important to discuss your risk with your anesthesiologist. Infection in rare circumstances, patients may develop an infection following reconstructive procedures. These are usually managed with intraoperative and postoperative antibiotics. Bleeding, although rare, patients may have bleeding episodes following reconstructive surgery. Our surgeon will likely order blood work to make sure you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure and minimize the risk of bleeding. Your surgeon should also go over all medications and supplements to minimize bleeding risk.
