Reconstructive surgery refers to a broad spectrum of medical procedures used to address functional and structural irregularities of the face and head. While cosmetic surgery can improve how the face looks and feels, reconstructive surgery uses medical techniques for creating, rebuilding, and restructuring tissue, skin and bone in order to address how the face functions. Cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries are often combined to offer the patient a comprehensive result – this is referred to as Corrective Surgery.
Injuries from dog bites, automobile accidents or burns, trauma, disease, birth defects and deformities are the main applications of reconstructive surgery. The most common reconstructive surgeries are those for repairing cleft palates and the bones and soft tissues of the face, those for removing tumors and those for grafting skin.
