Reconstructive Plastic Surgery
Facial plastic surgery usually makes us think of nose jobs or a facelift.
We think it is for people desiring to look as youthful as possible or wanting to fix the nose they’ve always hated. Yet there is an entire field of facial plastic surgery that has nothing to do with trying to alter your looks. Reconstructive plastic surgery is endeavoring to restore the face to how it looked before a trauma.
Car accidents are a good example of a common trauma that can cause facial damage. When the head hits the dashboard or windshield, the impact can cause broken noses and jaws or other facial disfigurements. Any abrupt penetration to the face, such as a punch, a blow from a blunt object, or even a gunshot wound, can cause severe damage to facial structures as well as the skin.
Involves A Plastic Surgeon, Oral Surgeon, Orthodontist, Ophthalmologist, And Otolaryngologist
Achieve A Normal Appearance Again
Reconstructive surgery is intended to restore function and achieve a normal appearance again. For example, if the nose received a blow that blocked or reduced the size of the nasal passages, surgery would restore the function of the nose, which is to breathe properly. If the jaw was broken and it is difficult for the person to chew food, surgery would correct the jaw so that they could eat normally again. Facial reconstruction can involve a plastic surgeon, oral surgeon, orthodontist, ophthalmologist, and otolaryngologist (head and neck surgeon) if there was damage to the face, teeth, and eyes. Dr. Cory Torgerson is a certified Canadian plastic surgeon as well as a licenced otolaryngologist.
One of the most gratifying aspects of Dr. Torgerson’s career is restoring a person’s face if they have experienced trauma or have been born with a crooked nose that has impaired their breathing. He finds it extremely fulfilling to help them regain their self-esteem and confidence. Facial disfigurements and deformities cause emotional stress, which can lead to severe mental depression. Restoring a face also restores hope in people, allowing them to face the world with new strength and vigour.
Extensive Study Of Facial Structure And The Skin
Not Always Involves Scalpel
Reconstructive surgery not only involves aesthetics, but also extensive study of facial structure and the skin. Often the skin is discounted, but it is the body’s largest organ, and trauma can cause acute damage to it as well. Not all restoration involves the scalpel. For example, surgeons are able to minimize scarring using laser technology.
Sometimes the facial damage caused by the trauma necessitates the use of silicone or Gore-Tex implants in the nose, chin, or jaw. Although both types of implants have excellent safety records, Dr. Torgerson prefers to use Gore-Tex implants. Reconstructive surgery gets its name because sometimes the facial feature has been injured so much, it literally has to be reconstructed. The nose is the most prominent feature and usually experiences the most damage. Often several surgeries are necessary to restore a person’s face to its original state.
You may not require reconstructive plastic surgery, but Dr. Torgerson’s years of experience in facial artistry and contouring will enable you to put your confidence in him for your next facial cosmetic procedure.
