Skull deformity reconstruction addresses skull deformities acquired either by cancer resection or by trauma. Depending on the extent of the deformity, customized computer-generated implants can be created and surgically implanted. Scalp expanders are used to expand the skin envelope before implant insertion, when needed. This process begins approximately three months before the implant surgery date.
Facial paralysis due to tumor removal, trauma or congenital issues results in the affected side of the face not moving normally. The underlying problem is damage or maldevelopment of the facial nerve or the facial muscles themselves. Today’s techniques involve a combination of static procedures, eyelid weights, nerve and muscle transfers and cosmetic procedures to improve both facial form and function.
