Secondary Facial Reconstruction
What Is Secondary Facial Reconstruction?

 

Secondary Facial Reconstruction Chicago

Secondary facial reconstruction is a general category of craniofacial surgery that refers to patients who have already had one or more facial procedures performed and desire (or require) a secondary reconstructive surgery. There may be any number of reasons that a patient would undergo secondary facial reconstruction, including but not limited to:

  • Enhance the results of previous surgeries
  • Improve aesthetic appearance after functional craniofacial surgery
  • Revise the outcome of previous surgeries

CANDIDATES OF SECONDARY FACIAL RECONSTRUCTIONS

A patient who has already undergone facial reconstructive surgery – for example, after trauma or a tumor resection – and is unhappy with the outcome may be an ideal candidate for secondary facial reconstruction. Alternatively, a candidate may be a patient who has undergone facial surgery previously but requires multiple procedures in order to fully correct a defect or issue caused by trauma.

It is always of the utmost importance to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with comprehensive experience and expertise before making the decision to undergo secondary facial reconstructive surgery.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CONSULTATION

When you schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, you will meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in craniofacial and reconstructive surgery. Your surgeon will perform a full facial evaluation during your consultation and discuss both your aesthetic and functional goals with you. We will review your entire medical history to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for secondary facial reconstruction, and we are always happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

THE PROCESS OF SECONDARY FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION

The way in which secondary reconstructions are performed varies greatly according to each patient’s individual needs and the extent of the corrections to be carried out. Such corrections may include amending facial asymmetries, placing implants (facial implants), repositioning bone (osteotomies, orthognathic surgery), revising soft tissue and muscle (scar revision), or filling in defects with fat (fat grafting).

Recovery from secondary facial reconstruction will also vary according to the necessary corrections. Before undergoing any procedures, your plastic surgeon will review all aspects of the process, including recovery and any potential risks that may be associated with it.

WHAT DOES SECONDARY FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION COST?

Secondary facial reconstruction is a highly personalized procedure, and as such, it is difficult to provide an approximate cost. Be sure to discuss all costs with your plastic surgeon during your consultation. Your medical insurance may cover some or all of the cost associated with secondary facial reconstruction, so contact your provider before undergoing the procedure.

A 1 year follow-up on a patient who wanted a rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and improve the aesthetics of her tip. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose made straighter, the tip refined, and the tip rotated and projected more. Her new nose fits her face without overtly changing the ethnic features of her face. Posted with permission.

One year follow-up on a #BBL or Brazilian butt lift. As you can see from the post-operative photos, the fat that is transferred stays and is permanent. Posted with permission.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.

Challenging #breastaugmentation case where the patient had asymmetries of the breasts in terms of size, shape, and position on the chest. The patient underwent a breast augmentation with #gelimplants with a larger size in the left breast to balance the size difference.

Plastic surgery can sometimes be subtle or dramatic. In this case, this patient’s outcome was life altering after a lipoabdominoplasty or tummy tuck. The patient can now do all of the things in life that she was limited in doing due to her body habitus. Posted with permission.
