Cheek Reconstruction in San Ramon, CA
Gladstone Clinic offers cheek reconstruction for women and men who live in San Ramon, San Francisco, Pleasanton and the surrounding communities in California.
What is Cheek Reconstruction?
Your cheek constitutes your facial periphery, and it plays a key role in the maintenance of oral competence and chewing. Cheek reconstruction is a viable option if significant defects of the cheek present a reconstructive challenge due to their extremely visible site, as well as limited local tissue supply. Cheek reconstruction aims to restore your normal skin cover and contour for this prominent facial feature that can’t be hidden by clothing or makeup.
Benefits of Cheek Reconstruction
Cheek deformities are extremely visible and may involve missing skin, which is often caused by skin cancer removal, or sometimes brought about by fractures of your bone or the congenital underdevelopment of your soft tissue. Since the cheek is the highlight of the midface region, deformities in this area are extremely noticeable. For selected defects within the cheek, acceptable functional and aesthetic results can be achieved with cheek reconstruction. Achieving aesthetic surgical outcomes after reconstruction of cheek defects requires knowledge of cheek and facial anatomy, all areas where Dr. Gladstone’s expertise shines through.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Cheek Reconstruction?
Reconstruction of cheek defects after trauma or surgery is a continuing challenge if you want to reliably restore facial function and appearance. Cheek reconstruction is ideal for issues where you experience large defects on the medial cheek, which particularly when they are very deep, can distort the free margin of your eyelid or lip in an unacceptable manner. Your face is exceedingly important since it’s the medium through which you interact with the rest of society, which is why more and more patients choose cheek reconstruction from the Gladstone Clinic.
What Do I Need to Do Before Cheek Reconstruction?
Are you ready for your transformation? During your consultation, we’ll review your cheek reconstruction procedure with you, including what steps you will need to take prior to your procedure to maximize the potential for optimal outcomes.
How Long Does It Take To Perform Cheek Reconstruction?
The effective and aesthetically pleasing repair of skin cancer defects is among the most common reasons for cheek reconstruction. Skin cancer in this area is generally removed by the use of Mohs surgery. Depending on the location and size of the specific defect, skin flaps, and secondary laser skin treatments can erase any visible signs of skin cancer. Oftentimes, the repair of small and medium-sized cheek skin cancer defects can be enhanced with cheek augmentation with fat transfer, which can be performed under local anesthesia. Surgical repair of bigger cheek defects and the repair of complex cheek fractures may require general anesthesia in an operating suite.
What To Expect After Cheek Reconstruction?
The swelling and bruising that follows surgical repair of cheek skin cancer defects or cheek fractures is mostly resolved within about two weeks, and most patients can return to work at that time. Dr. Gladstone will review your specific post-surgical expectations with you during your free consultation.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Cheek Reconstruction?
The goal of cheek reconstruction is to create the illusion of normality and the perception that all is as it was. Whether or not you have scars will depend on the nature of the defect being treating, and Dr. Gladstone will take all the time you need during your consultation to answer any questions you may have.
When Will I See The Results?
Reconstruction of the cheek requires in-depth knowledge of skin and soft tissue mechanics, as well as proper soft tissue handling techniques.
