Helping Your Face Look And Function Like Normal In Herndon, VA

At AMG Plastic Surgery, we understand that your face is the core of your identity. When our faces are damaged or disfigured, it can impact our sense of self. We are pleased to offer facial reconstruction surgery to reshape the head and neck and help patients restore their appearance. Dr. Ghaznavi is an expert in aesthetic facial surgery as well as reconstructive surgery, so you can expect to receive treatment that puts an emphasis on both facial function and on appearance.

What to Expect

We understand that reconstructive surgery is a big decision—that’s why our team is here to help you every step of the way! Dr. Ghaznavi will create a customized treatment plan to fit your specific needs and goals. As an expert in reconstructive surgery, Dr. Ghaznavi can restore both facial appearance and function.

In addition to repairing facial fractures, Dr. Ghaznavi can also reconstruct damaged soft tissues. This allows for your ligaments, muscles and tendons in the face to function properly, and your face to regain a natural appearance.

During a facial reconstruction procedure, Dr. Ghaznavi may use tissues from your body with a microvascular free tissue transfer, also known as “free flap,” taking skin, bone or muscle from one part of your body and using it to reconstruct new facial features. If this process is not possible, Dr. Ghaznavi may then utilize implants and other prosthetic devices to reconstruct the face in a natural-looking way.

Reasons For Facial Reconstruction

Patients who have experienced any of the following may choose to undergo facial reconstructive surgery:

  • Accident

  • Infection

  • Disease

  • Cancer

  • Trauma

  • Birth defects

  • Paralysis

  • Nasal obstruction

Recovery From Facial Reconstruction

During facial reconstruction surgery, it is important for the bones and skin around the nose, throat and ears to properly heal. Whether you seek out reconstruction surgery because of skin cancer, a traumatic injury, or genetics, we understand that damage to the face can impact your sense of self.

Having a scar on your face can often impact your self-image. As a facial reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Ghaznavi can help make scars as inconspicuous and unnoticeable as possible. We put people back on their feet after cancer or trauma and help them move forward. Dr. Ghaznavi uses special cosmetic surgery techniques to minimize any scarring from the incisions.

Recovering from facial reconstruction surgery varies from person to person, and depends on the extent of underlying damage, your general health and other factors, including careful attention to postoperative instructions. Dr. Ghaznavi and his team focus on your health and well-being and will support your experience with knowledgeable care, clear communication and compassion.
