What is Facial Reconstruction?
Facial reconstruction involves restructuring certain areas of the face to provide a more uniform and/or natural appearance. This type of surgery is common among accident and burn victims, as well as veterans who have been disfigured due to combat. Reconstruction may also be performed to fill in areas of the face that have been permanently removed due to cancer.
Benefits of Facial Reconstruction
Those who suffer from facial deformities often fear going out in public because they are self-conscious about how others perceive them. Undergoing surgery is one of the best ways to rebuild self-esteem and allow people to get their lives back on track. When deformities affect the nose, correcting it can also help an individual breathe better.

- Skin grafting
- Fat transfer
- Augmentation to fill in the cheeks, forehead, chin or lips
- Bone grafting
During your consultation, Dr. Wallace will determine which techniques would best provide you with the results you desire, and then discuss each one in depth with you.

After Your Facial Reconstruction
Your face may be covered with bandages, which should be kept clean and dry. You may also need to avoid smoking or using alcohol until your face has fully healed.
Getting Back to Normal Following Facial Reconstruction
Once bandages have been removed, you will notice an immediate improvement in your appearance; however, the full effects may not be visible for a few weeks afterwards. More than one procedure could be needed, and if so, you will see gradual improvement after each one.
