Lip Reconstruction Plastic Surgery
Injury and disease can cause lip deformities that impact the beauty and function of your lips. The lips are a very noticeable feature and play an important role in your appearance and speech. If your lips are damaged from trauma, cancer or a birth defect, lip reconstruction can be used to restore the appearance and function of the lips. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg at Vantage Plastic Surgery is a double board certified plastic surgeon who offers lip reconstruction plastic surgery at our clinics in NYC.
The lips are delicate, but powerful in their abilities. The lip skin is very thin, covering a soft fatty tissue that is flexible and precisely controlled by the mouth muscles. When the lips are damaged, it can impact your appearance and mouth movement. Restoring the structure of the lips requires extensive expertise in both facial function and aesthetics. Dr. Shteynberg has years of experience as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, using his skills to restore the shape and balance of the lips while ensuring function.
Lip Trauma and Disease Repair
There are a multitude of accidents and conditions that can affect the lips. Burns injuries can damage the delicate skin and fatty tissue on the lips, requiring reconstruction. Lacerations and trauma from auto wrecks and other accidents can severely damage lips. Skin and oral cancer can require Mohs surgery and lip tissue removal for cancer treatment. All these circumstances can require lip reconstruction to repair damaged tissue to restore lip appearance and function.
Lip reconstruction requires rebuilding the lip structure. Dr. Shteynberg may use skin and fat grafting to recreate the lips using tissue from other areas on the body. Function is vital, but so are the aesthetics of the lips. Dr. Shteynberg strives to achieve a balance of form and function with every lip reconstruction plastic surgery for the most natural results for his patients.
