Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Although oral and maxillofacial surgeons are primarily concerned with the surgical reconstruction of the jaws and facial skeleton, numerous ancillary facial cosmetic surgical procedures can be performed to enhance the overall result of your planned surgery or be performed on their own.
These procedures are routinely performed in the office or surgical center setting under both local and intravenous anesthesia. Maxillofacial cosmetic procedures can be performed in conjunction with elective reconstructive jaw surgery or as separate procedures.
Some of the more commonly performed cosmetic procedures are as follows:
- Genioplasty (chin surgery)
- Malar Augmentation (cheek surgery)
- Lip Enhancement
- Buccal Fat Pad Excision
- Removal of Moles and Nevi
- Facial Scar Revision
- Laser Assisted Surgery
- Reconstructive Maxillofacial Surgery
