Facial Reconstructive Surgery Pittsburgh

Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma or injury, infection, tumors, or disease. It is generally performed to improve function, but may also be done to restore balance and more natural looking appearances. Plastic surgeon Dr. Simona Pautler offers nose and cheek reconstruction at her plastic surgery facility in the Pittsburgh area.

Nasal Reconstruction

Nasal Reconstruction is performed to repair a deformity or nasal injury due to skin cancer, trauma, or birth defects by replacing skin, cartilage, or lining. The operation restores normal shape, position, and appearance of the nose.

Dr. Pautler rebuilds the delicate contours of the nose to reconstruct one of this most important midline facial landmark. Dr. Pautler “borrows” skin from other areas of the face to accomplish this delicate procedure. By performing her nasal reconstructions in stages, Dr. Pautler can achieve realistic and natural results.

Cheek Reconstruction

The cheek can be damaged by trauma, skin cancer, or a number of other medical reasons. The smooth texture of the cheek needs to be maintained, as well as the important relationships to the lower eyelid and the lips. Plastic surgeon Dr. Pautler incorporates these key principles in her method of cheek reconstruction to minimize scarring and to recreate the best contour possible.
