How is Facial Bone Correction performed?

Facial bone correction, or facial osteotomies, is a surgical procedure to shape and contour facial bones. It is a reconstructive surgery used to improve facial symmetry and proportions. It corrects a fracture or congenital ailment, reduces the size, and reshapes the forehead, cheeks, jaw, chin, nose, and other facial features.

The procedure can be performed using various techniques, depending on the patient’s needs and the desired outcome. In some cases, the surgeon may use a combination of methods.

Facial fractures fixation:

What is facial fractures fixation?

Facial fractures fixation is the surgical procedure used to repair broken facial bones. When conservative treatments, such as immobilization, fail to remedy facial fractures in patients, surgeons typically recommend facial fracture fixation surgery. For those suffering from cosmetic deformities on their face due to fractures or for patients whose facial structures such as the mouth and eyes are affected by fractures, facial fractures fixation surgery may be recommended.

How is facial fractures fixation performed?

Facial fractures fixation is usually done with the aid of plates and screws, which are inserted into the bone in order to hold it in place.

The surgery is performed after the administration of general anesthesia and takes several hours. The patients must stay in the hospital for some days after the surgery. After the surgery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and pain in the facial area that improves over time.

Following the surgeon’s instructions for post-operative care and attending all follow-ups is essential.

How is facial asymmetry correction performed?

The facial asymmetry correction can be done using either surgical or non-surgical techniques, according to the case.

Combining surgical and non-surgical procedures will achieve the desired results depending on the asymmetry.

Facial bone volume correction aims to improve facial symmetry and aesthetics and improve the patient’s self-confidence.

Types of facial bone volume correction

There are many types of facial bone volume correction procedures. The most common methods include:

    1. Cheekbone volume reduction: This procedure involves removing cheekbone volume to create a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing face. It is done by making small incisions and sculpting the bones to create a more natural-looking appearance.
    1. Cheekbone volume augmentation: This procedure is used to correct facial asymmetries or enhance the shape of the face. It involves using implants or fat grafts to add volume to the cheekbones to create a more balanced look.

The procedure includes the following:

  1. Anesthesia: The patient will be given general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the extent of the procedure.
  2. Incision: An incision will be made in the scalp to access the facial bones.
  3. Bone sculpting: In the case of cheekbone volume reduction, the surgeon will sculpt the bone and remove the excess bone from the area to be corrected.
  4. Bone grafting: In the case of cheekbone volume augmentation, a bone graft, fat graft, or fillers may fill in any gaps or defects in the facial bones.
  5. Suturing: The incision will be closed with sutures.
  6. Recovery: The patient will be monitored for complications and advised to rest and take medications as prescribed.

Chin augmentation or reduction (genioplasty):

What is genioplasty?

Genioplasty is a type of plastic surgery used to reshape the chin. It is most commonly used to correct chin deformities or to modify the size and shape of the chin. Genioplasty can be done to both reduce the size of a chin or increase it, depending on the patient’s desired outcome.

How is genioplasty performed?

First, general or local anesthesia is administered. The surgeon then makes an incision in the mouth, which is used to access the chin. Depending on whether the goal of the procedure is to increase or decrease chin size, excess bone may be removed or a graft material may be added to increase its size. After sculpting the bone, the incision is closed with sutures and covered with a bandage.

How is the recovery after Facial Bone Correction?

The recovery after facial bone correction depends on the procedure performed, but generally, patients can expect to experience some swelling and bruising after the procedure. Pain medication may be prescribed as needed. In most cases, the patient’s sutures will be removed within one to two weeks after surgery and normal activities may be resumed within a few days. It is important for the patient to follow all post-operative instructions given by the surgeon in order to ensure a successful recovery. It is also important for patients to avoid any activities that may increase swelling or cause discomfort during the healing process.
