Custom Facial Reconstruction in Chicago It is Life-Changing
In your first consultation with Dr. Sulyman-Scott, who is one of the few African American female facial plastic surgeons practicing in the USA, she will listen intently to ensure she fully understands what needs and goals are regarding your pursuit of reconstructive surgery.
She will examine your face, assess the areas of concern, discuss treatment options, share likely outcomes and ensure you feel confident with the surgical plan. Under her expert hands, facial reconstruction can be used to improve function, symmetry, and appearance.
Your Journey to Increased Confidence Starts Here
Dr. Sulyman-Scott uses the most advanced tools and skills to determine how she can mitigate the future impacts of your injury – such as scarring, asymmetry, or other challenges while protecting your sensory and nerve functions. Your facial reconstruction could be performed within days of your Mohs procedure or your traumatic injury; sometimes sooner for addressing soft tissue injuries or facial fractures.
What Does Facial Reconstruction Entail?
As a former nurse and board-eligible otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat specialist) Dr. Sulyman-Scott puts your health and satisfaction first. Facial reconstruction could require more than one procedure depending on your individual needs. Each procedure starts with a list of dos and don’ts. For example, you likely will be told to avoid blood thinners.
Facial Traumatic Injuries
These often involve repairs to soft tissue and may involve stitches. It may also involve adjusting asymmetry and misalignment of tissues. If your facial reconstruction involves facial bone fractures, Dr. Sulyman-Scott will use tools to restore the shape and stabilize the bones, improving the function and form of the impacted area.
This cancer treatment frequently entails using nearby skin to create a “flap,” effectively restoring the skin that was excised. This may also be done by harvesting skin and tissue from a donor site on your body to graft onto the surgical site. Ultimately, the goal is a seamless cosmetic recovery from the reminders of skin cancer.
Your Recovery Experience
Whether you are recovering from a skin graft from Mohs surgery or need facial reconstruction from a traumatic facial injury, Dr. Sulyman-Scott has got your back through every step of your recovery. Although you will likely experience bruising and swelling, the recovery time will reflect the extent of your facial reconstruction surgery. It may be as short as seven days and as long as several weeks or longer. Dr. Sulyman-Scott will prescribe pain medication to keep you comfortable throughout your recovery.
