Lip Reconstruction Plastic Surgery

When the lips are damaged, due to health issues or trauma, it can have a major impact on the person. Not only are the lips important for speech, they have a significant role in the aesthetics of the face. Repairing and reconstructing lips that have been damaged is a complex and delicate facial plastic reconstructive procedure that can only be performed by specialized surgeons in this field. Dr. Joseph Rousso is one of the few facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in NYC that offers lip reconstruction for his patients.

One of the most common causes of lip damage is skin or oral cancer. There is a high incidence of these types of cancers that can impact the oral tissues and lips, and removal of the tumors or lesion can also remove portions of the lip tissue. The disfigurement of the lips can alter speech and have a drastic impact on the appearance of the patient. They may feel self-conscious and lose confidence in their appearance. Reconstruction can help restore the form and function of the lips, improving the overall quality of life for the patient.

Lip Trauma Reconstruction

Because of the uniqueness of the lips in movement and shape, reconstruction is a very difficult procedure. However, Dr. Rousso has spent many years specializing in reconstructive surgery, especially for the mouth. His experience in reconstructing cleft lips in children from all over the world has given him the expertise needed for all types of lip reconstructions, whether the damage is caused by cancer removal, trauma or other conditions. As with all his reconstructive procedures, Dr. Rousso focuses on creating beautiful form and exceptional function in his lip reconstructions, giving his patients back their smiles.

If you have undergone lip trauma and need reconstructive surgery, contact the office of Dr. Rousso in New York City today. You will be in the best surgical hands to restore your lips and repair the damage, with beautiful results.
