There are several reasons that an individual may require facial reconstruction. An injury can dramatically change the shape and appearance of the face. Facial features often lose symmetry simply due to the position of a scar that throws off balance. For others, facial reconstruction procedures provide a confidence boost when the individual is not happy with a particular feature.
Facial anatomy is a lot more complex that appearances may suggest. It takes a highly skilled plastic surgeon to understand the delicate balance between features that creates symmetry. Patients who are seeking facial reconstruction can consult with Dr. Stong from Kalos at his Atlanta offices.
One of the most popular types of facial reconstruction involves scar revision. When scar tissue is highly visible or raised, it can impact a person’s confidence. Facial scarring can also inhibit the use of features such as the lips. Patients who have difficulty smiling may request scar revision to improve functionality as well as reducing the visibility of the scar.
Dr. Stong has a wealth of experience in treating patients with complex facial scars. There are a number of factors that can impact the nature of treatment. The position of scars, patient’s age and skin type are some of the things Dr. Stong considers when making recommendations.
If you have facial scar tissue but are not sure whether revision is possible, a consultation with Dr. Stong will answer any questions you may have. Timing is important when it comes to procedures for revising scars. Although it is important to let a wound heal, seeking a consultation early after an injury is recommended.
