The lips are important for aesthetics and function of the mouth. When trauma causes an injury to the lips or there is a birth defect on the lips, functions such as speech and the appearance of the mouth may be affected. Lip reconstruction is a complex procedure that must incorporate all the aspects of lip function and form for the best results. If you have suffered lip trauma or have lips deformed from an illness or a congenital defect, you can trust the experience and expertise of Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics in NYC for superior lip reconstruction results.
The lips are soft and pliable to allow for intricate movement. The elements that make them functional and sensuous also make them vulnerable to injury. When the skin or tissue is torn, burned or lacerated, extensive surgical skill is required to restore their form and function. The same is true when a congenital defect impacts the lip form or when an illness, like skin or oral cancer, creates a lip deformity.
Dr. Linkov has extensive experience in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. He uses cutting-edge technology and methods to repair lips damaged by trauma or disease. He also reforms lips that were impacted by a congenital defect, improving the function and aesthetics of the lips.
Undergoing Lip Reconstruction Surgery
Lip reconstruction surgery is complex and requires a customized surgical plan for each patient. Depending on the type and extent of the damage, it can require extensive care to create new lip tissue that will respond to the nerves and muscles that control the mouth. Lip reconstruction may require skin and fat grafting to recreate the lips. Dr. Linkov uses his surgical and artistic skills to create lips that restore function while improving the overall appearance of the mouth.
