Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Q & A

What is Facial Plastic Surgery?

Although facial plastic surgery may be done to repair some structural problems, such as a deviated septum, it primarily focuses on cosmetic procedures designed to enhance the appearance of your face, nose, ears, lips, and neck.

The physicians have an exceptional surgical skill, and they also have the artistic touch that’s needed to deliver results that meet your expectations. In fact, defining your expectations is the key to successful plastic surgery.

It’s important to talk to your doctor about what you don’t like about your appearance and the changes you want to make. Then your doctor can explain the procedures, the outcomes that are achievable and how plastic surgery will affect your appearance.

Which Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures are Available?

Plastic surgery performed by ENT specialists includes a broad range of procedures, such as face-lifts, eye lifts, and procedures to diminish wrinkles.

These are a few of the cosmetic surgeries most often performed at Southern ENT Associates:

  • Rhinoplasty: This cosmetic surgery changes the appearance of your nose, such as reducing its size or width, removing bumps on the bridge, straightening a crooked nose, or reshaping the tip of a nose when it’s too large or droopy.
  • Otoplasty: This is surgery to improve the shape, position, or size of your ears, including ears that stick out, drooping ears, and torn earlobes.


What is Facial Reconstructive Surgery?

Reconstructive surgery rebuilds structures or reshapes parts of your face. It’s often performed to correct congenital disabilities, developmental abnormalities, and damage of facial tissues resulting from trauma or disease.

This type of surgery often serves a dual purpose: It restores functioning and improves the appearance of the damaged area.

What Types of Facial Reconstructive Surgery are There?

The physicians at Southern ENT Associates perform many different types of reconstructive surgeries. Some of the most common procedures include:

  • Cancer reconstruction to repair the skin, muscle, or bone that is taken out during cancer surgery
  • Cleft lip and cleft palate surgery to restore congenital deformities
  • Facial trauma reconstruction to repair and rebuild structures damaged by fractures, lacerations, and traumatic injury
  • Ear reconstruction to improve the shape or position of your ears or to reconstruct a partial or total ear that’s missing due to trauma, cancer surgery, or congenital disabilities
  • Scar revision surgery to eliminate or minimize facial scarring
