When a facial reconstruction is needed due to a birth defect, disease, development, or traumatic facial injury, it’s incredibly important to work with a specialist in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, such as Dr. Frankel.
About Facial Reconstruction
An experienced facial reconstructive surgeon will be able to effectively perform surgery in order to restore functionality and/or appearance to those who have a congenital condition, have undergone an injury, or have reconstruction needs due to disease.
Dr. Jonathan Frankel is double board-certified in Double board-certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, making him incredibly qualified for facial reconstruction.
What Areas Can be Treated?
“Dr. Frankel took a lot of time with my daughter to listen to her concerns, explain procedures, and answer questions. It was our first time meeting him, and we were very impressed with how approachable and warm he was during the visit.”
Types of Reconstruction Dr. Frankel Performs
Facial reconstruction may involve the repair of skin, bone, muscle, other tissues, or each of these. As a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Frankel has extensive training and experience in this area, and he approaches each patient’s case with a highly customized treatment plan.
Congenital conditions occur with birth, and can include such issues as ear deformities, skin abnormalities, or facial asymmetries.
Skin Cancer Reconstruction
Dr. Frankel works with surgeons who excise skin cancer. Once it has been removed, he performs the plastic surgery repair and closure.
Trauma repair addresses wounds created by burns, punches, cuts, crushes, penetrating injuries, animal bites, sports injuries, car accidents, and more.
Scar revision aims to make a patient’s scar as flat, smooth, and concealed as possible in order to blend in with its surroundings.
What to Expect During Your Consultation with Dr. Frankel
Although some types of facial reconstruction must be handled immediately — such as an animal bite or crash injury — there are other types that have the luxury of a consultation, where you can learn about your treatment plan. Whether your consultation is for you or your child, the goal is the same: for Dr. Frankel to evaluate the area and explain how he can help. During your consultation, he will educate you on all of your options and will tell you the plan that he believes will work best. He will guide you through the procedure, risks, and recovery, as well as what results you can expect.
