Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Facial plastic and reconstructive surgery is concerned with improvement in the appearance and function of facial structures. The decision to undergo facial surgery is a very personal and important one, requiring mutual understanding and rapport between patient and surgeon.
Being highly trained, skilled and artistic physicians, the facial plastic surgeons of the Otolaryngology Department at URMC are uniquely qualified to understand and recognize the functional as well as the aesthetic considerations of facial surgery.
Our goal is to make your entire surgical experience a pleasant and convenient one while striving to achieve a natural appearance for you. Successful facial surgery is a result of good rapport between patient and surgeon. Trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops in the consulting stages before surgery.
It is very important that you thoroughly understand the details and ramifications of your potential surgery, and the policies of our office. Our intention is to ensure that all your questions are answered fully, and that each patient approaches surgery with the confidence and expectation born of a realistic understanding of the goals and limitations of surgery; we believe a patient who is informed and prepared has a much better surgical experience than one who is not.
