Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., is trained and experienced in advanced facial reconstruction techniques. He performs facial reconstruction for children and adults in Nashville and Franklin who wish to restore a more normal appearance to their face after suffering trauma, injury, or birth defects.
What is Facial Reconstruction Surgery?
Facial reconstruction surgery is for Nashville men, women and children who have either congenital (birth) defects or who have sustained defects as a result of trauma, age, or disease. This may be through one type of surgery or a combination of surgeries. Dr. Robbins will work with each patient to determine the most effective way of repairing damage to the face. This is achieved by manipulating delicate bone, nerves, and muscles, as well as conforming the skin to the natural curves of the face.
Benefits of Facial Reconstruction Surgery
Facial reconstruction is a blanket term for a variety of procedures used to restore the face to a pre-trauma state. This includes procedures that remove scars, remove excess skin to increase eyesight, reduce signs at sites of trauma, or adjusting the ears to correct hearing problems.
After facial reconstruction surgery, patient’s quality of life improves significantly. Additional benefits include:
- Repairing and removing facial scars, tumors or other signs of trauma or disease.
- Returning the face to a natural look.
- Restoring self-confidence and image.
Facial reconstruction is a highly individualized procedure, and the specific techniques used will vary depending on the extent of the surgery as well as the area of the face requiring surgical repair. Dr. Robbins meets with each patient several times before surgery to discuss the details and goals of facial reconstruction as well as recovery and healing.
Am I a Candidate for Facial Reconstruction Surgery?
Dr. Robbins recommends a consultation for men, women and children in Nashville who have either a congenital or developmental defect. Issues that negatively impact the function of their face, the patient’s self-confidence or their appearance may be corrected through facial reconstruction surgery. Common conditions treated by facial reconstructive surgery include burns, deformities the patient was born with, the effects of cancer or another disease, or the impact of a fall or other injury.
How Much Does Facial Reconstruction Cost?
Cost for facial reconstruction surgery will depend on the extent of the surgery as well as the number of treatments required to achieve the desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures. Financing is offered via CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending.
