The reconstruction of defects of the head and neck, which often result from cancer surgery or trauma, requires a specialized team approach that includes plastic surgeons who specialize in reconstructive techniques. Cleveland Clinic Florida plastic surgeons work closely with members of our otolaryngology and radiology teams as well as our oncologists. Together we plan the most functional and ideal aesthetic outcomes for our patients.
The head and neck reconstructive procedures we perform include:
- Mandible reconstruction
- Maxillary Reconstruction
- Cervical Facial Flaps
- Free flaps
What to Expect
When deciding on cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, it is important to consult with an expert. During your consultation at Cleveland Clinic Florida’s Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center one of our board-certified physicians will meet with you to discuss your goals and expectations as well as the following:
- Review your complete medical history (including past and current medications)
- Discuss any medical conditions that could affect your procedure’s outcomes
- Explain the benefits, risks and timeline for the procedure
- Evaluate the part of your body that would be treated
- Give recommendations
- Answer any questions you may have
At your consultation, if you wish, you also may see “before” and “after” photographs of our patients who have undergone similar procedures. You will leave your first visit with a clear idea of the options available to you, as well as any risks involved.
Our plastic surgeons also may collaborate with physicians from other medical and surgical specialties to provide you with the best and most comprehensive care for your aesthetic and reconstructive needs.
