The name “Plastic” is derived from the Greek word “Plastik” which means “to mold.” This couldn’t be more evident than in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery for facial deformities. Accidents, burns, congenital defects, cancer and the treatment of cancer can result in facial disfigurement and deformity. Reconstructive plastic surgery is used to restore normal facial form and function. Techniques used to correct these problems may involve the facial bones and/or the soft tissues and skin. Board certified plastic surgeons are trained in fundamental reconstruction principles that allow them to use tissue from other areas of the body as well as synthetic materials to best address these complex problems.
