What Is Facial Reconstruction?

Facial reconstruction is a category of cosmetic surgery that focuses on rebuilding or reshaping certain areas of the face that have become damaged due to trauma, illness, or birth defect. Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Raymond D. Jean is highly skilled at transforming patients so they look as good as new (or sometimes even better)!

Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Reconstruction?

Facial reconstruction is something you may want to consider if you are bothered by an abnormality in your face, or find that certain defects interfere with the way you function. Accident victims, as well as service members who were injured in war often, desire facial reconstruction to help reduce or reduce the effects of their injury.

What are the Benefits of Facial Reconstruction?

Experiencing an injury or living with a birth defect that affects the appearance of your face can be extraordinarily challenging. It is natural to want your appearance to reflect who you are on the inside, and scars or other abnormalities can obscure this. Injuries and defects can also make you feel self-conscious. The benefits of facial reconstruction are both cosmetic and emotional in nature. Reducing the appearance of your concerns can unburden you from the emotional toll these defects have had on your psyche and on your life.

When Will I be able to Notice My Results?

You can expect to see some difference right away after having facial reconstruction. Keep in mind that, depending on your situation, Dr. Jean may plan your treatment in stages. You will also very likely have side effects like swelling and bruising that will temporarily obscure your final outcome. So, while you may notice certain improvements immediately after surgery, you can expect them to improve over several days or weeks.

Are My Results Permanent?

Some of the results that are achieved during your facial reconstruction process may be permanent. For example, procedures like rhinoplasty and cheek or chin implants can last indefinitely. Over time, you can expect to see the normal signs of aging appear. Some signs of aging, such as facial laxity, can slightly alter the overall shape of the face. That said, these changes do not cause the defects we’ve repaired to return.


How Reliable is Facial Reconstruction Surgery?

Studies suggest that, due to the advanced imaging and planning that occur in facial reconstruction cases, these procedures are extremely reliable. You can expect to have your natural, authentic appearance back after undergoing your facial reconstruction. Throughout the planning process, clear communication from the doctor and your care team will enable you to have an accurate depiction of your anticipated outcome.

What does Face Reconstruction Entail?

It is difficult to discuss this in general terms. To plan your facial reconstruction, the doctor will carefully examine your facial structure, scars, injury, or defects, and may also perform various types of imaging. Your facial reconstruction may involve only minor treatments to reduce the appearance of scars. It may involve skin grafting, bone reconstruction, or soft tissue repair and reconstruction.

Planning Your Facial Reconstruction Treatment

Dr. Jean will perform a thorough analysis that may include taking X-rays, photographs, or drawings of your face. This will allow him to come up with a customized treatment plan, which he will then share with you in greater detail.

Facial reconstruction must sometimes be performed in stages. If that is the case, Dr. Jean will provide you with a timeline for treatment so you can better plan your recovery.

How Is Facial Reconstruction Performed?

The number of possible techniques that may be used in facial reconstruction are too numerous to mention here. Once Dr. Jean determines how he will perform your reconstruction, he can then provide you with more specific details

What to Expect* after Facial Reconstruction

You will typically notice some improvement right away and will feel more confident as a result.

Read what our patients are saying!

Approximately 8 months ago I had a Facelift, Neck Lift and Brow Lift with Dr. Jean. To say I am very pleased with my results is an understatement. I am 60 years old and my main concern was addressing my sagging face and neck before my daughter’s wedding. From my initial consultation to each follow-up appointment, I couldn’t have had a better experience. Dr. Jean’s bedside manner, thoroughness, and unparalleled skill throughout the entire process confirmed that I chose the best surgeon to perform my procedure. My scars faded nicely and are at this point barely visible. I look 10 years younger and my confidence is restored!

Recovering from Facial Reconstruction

Depending upon the surgical technique used, you may need to wear a gauze bandage or take over-the-counter medication to help manage your discomfort. We will provide you with a list of instructions to follow concerning aftercare, including a timeline for follow-up appointments.

Don’t put off having facial reconstruction performed if you are suffering from a deformity or have abnormal facial features. It has radically changed the lives of many patients in the Philadelphia area, and it can dramatically alter yours in a positive way as well. Contact Main Line Plastic Surgery today to schedule your consultation.
