Plastic surgical procedures are usually performed in various surgical treatments or for the functional repairs of injuries, post-injury disorders, and skin cancers located around the head, face, and neck.
Maxillofacial surgeries range from small, local anesthetic procedures through to longer eight-hour surgeries, in which, for example, part of the face is rebuilt. The recovery time after facial surgery varies from days to months, depending on the size of the surgery.
Maxillofacial surgery is typically used for correcting trauma-based injuries, such as when the patient has fallen or received an impact to the face. Jaw joint surgery, on the other hand, typically treats patients with rheumatoid arthritis or joint wear and tear where opening the mouth is painful.
The most challenging surgical operations of the face and jaw are reconstructions of tissue defects caused by cancer surgery. In cancer surgery, healthy tissue is also removed from the tumor to prevent recurrence of the cancer. This is why tissue transplants often require the use of tissue grafts and, for example, the reconstruction of parts of the tongue.
