Severe trauma to the lower jaw, or mandible, can affect both mouth function and the aesthetics of the face. A broken jaw is not only painful but can also alter the teeth and jaw position. This may impact chewing, smiling, talking and other functions. Repairing a damaged mandible often requires reconstructive surgery. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics in New York City is an expert in facial reconstruction and plastic surgery. He repairs mandible injuries and restore beauty to the jawline.

Severe damage to the jaw is usually caused by a blunt impact to the face. This impact may occur as a result of an auto accident, sports activity or an act of personal violence, leaving the victim in pain and with alterations to their jaw function and appearance. The jaw is a complex mechanism in the face, requiring precise positioning to function correctly. Dr. Linkov’s extensive knowledge of the intricacies of the facial bones, nerves, muscles and tendons is used to repair the function and recreate a pleasing appearance to the jaw.

Plastic Surgery for Restoring Jaw Form and Function

Depending on the extent of damage to the mandible, specialized techniques may be needed to restore both form and function. Dr. Linkov uses cutting-edge techniques and methods to ensure his patients with jaw injuries have the highest level of restoration to their jaw movement.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
