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.
