Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Limited to aesthetic facial surgery & reconstructive surgery, our surgeon is fellowship trained and board certified in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. He is amongst a select group of physicians who is double-board certified in Facial Plastic Surgery & Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery.

Facial cosmetic surgery makes it possible to correct many flaws and signs of premature aging. We specialize in minimally invasive surgery with short scar techniques and rapid recovery healing. Emphasis is placed on natural and subtle cosmetic procedures, which enhance rather than change one's appearance. As with all elective surgery, good health and realistic expectations are a prerequisite.

Reconstructive surgery is a large part of the practice. We are nationally recognized as an expert in Mohs skin cancer reconstruction. Combining the specialties of Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) medicine gives us particular expertise in nasal reconstruction, cosmetic nasal surgery (Rhinoplasty & Revision Rhinoplasty), and many facial traumatic and cancer reconstructive procedures.

Mohs skin cancer reconstruction:
After your Mohs surgery is complete your dermatologist will bandage the wound and send you to our office. This may be done the day of surgery or the following day. Once the bandage is removed and the defect is assessed, the proper reconstruction will be chosen. Most defects can be repaired with skin flaps. A skin flap utilizes local redundant tissue and is advanced to cover the Mohs defect. For defects that are large or cannot undergo flap reconstruction, a skin graft is often employed. A skin graft involves removing a piece of skin from a donor site and then sewing it into the Mohs defect. Donor sites are typically chosen from areas with excess skin in inconspicuous locations, such as behind the ear. Whether you have a flap or a graft, evaluation for possible further refinement with dermabrasion is performed at approximately the sixth post-operative week. Most insurance companies will reimburse for these services since they should be considered reconstructive rather than cosmetic.
