Facial Reconstructive Surgery for Total Repair

Drs. Litner and Solieman’s passion for nasal surgery does not stop at cosmetic nose surgery. Our surgeons have extensive experience in helping patients with significant nasal deformities rebuild their noses and along with that, their self-esteem.

At Beverly Hills Profiles, nasal reconstruction procedures, sometimes referred to as reconstructive nose surgery, may include the repair of a major septal perforation or the reconstruction of a collapsed nasal bridge or tip.

Top Los Angeles and Beverly Hills nasal reconstruction specialists Drs. Solieman and Litner get referrals for nasal reconstructive surgery from all over the world for patients whose nose problems have been otherwise “written off” as being beyond repair.

If you have severe cosmetic and/or breathing concerns related to your nose because of injury, cocaine or other drug use, disease, prior surgery, or congenital problems such as cleft lip, there is a good chance that our specialists will be able to help you. We encourage you to browse our online book on Profiles Modern Rhinoplasty for more information related to nasal reconstruction as well as other topics related to the nose.

Feel free to contact us to discuss your situation in more detail so that we can help you determine if nasal reconstruction is right for you. During your individualized consultation, Drs. Solieman and Litner will examine you in detail and elaborate on what can be achieved with nasal reconstruction.

Risks Associated with Nose Reconstructive Surgery

As with other surgical procedures, there are some potential risks and temporary side-effects that come with reconstructive nose surgery. These include:

  • Bruising and swelling during the recovery period
  • Bleeding
  • Rare side-effects like noticeable asymmetry or infection

Drs. Litner and Solieman specialize in nose reconstructions because they are passionate about helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals, especially when they improve their quality of life. In order to reduce the chances of negative side-effects, our doctors design a custom aftercare plan for each patient.

Skin Cancer, Mohs Surgery and Reconstruction at Profiles

Not only does heavy sun exposure contribute to the premature aging of the skin, but it is also a significant risk factor for the development of skin cancer, including two of the most common forms, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.

These cancers are almost never life-threatening, but they can deform the skin. There are many ways to treat these superficial tumors, but the most reliable is an advanced technique called Mohs micrographic surgery. This technique involves the meticulous incremental removal of minute layers of skin tissue which are then examined under a microscope, ensuring that all cancerous tissue is removed while surrounding healthy tissue is preserved.

Mohs surgery is particularly useful for recurrent or aggressive tumors that appear in a scar, or those occurring in cosmetically sensitive areas like the lips, eyelids, or nose. In these cases, Mohs surgery can spare the surrounding healthy tissue while providing the highest potential for complete cancer removal.

While typically it is a specialized dermatologic surgeon who perform Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer, Drs. Solieman and Litner are often called upon by these physicians to then reconstruct the surgical site. Because a depression or hole may be left in the skin after a malignant lesion has been removed through Mohs surgery, significant reconstruction is required. Drs. Litner and Solieman have the expertise to best repair these defects and restore your anatomy and appearance while at the same time preserve the function of the facial feature which has undergone the procedure. In many cases, our surgeons’ reconstructive procedures are so inconspicuous that the scars become virtually unnoticeable.

When are Mohs Surgery and Surgical Reconstruction Necessary?

When it comes to skin cancer and Mohs surgery, the best results are achieved when the lesions are discovered and treated as early as possible. If you or someone you know is experiencing a non-healing sore or an area of skin that is itchy, painful, or bleeds easily for an extended period of time, we encourage you to seek a skin cancer evaluation. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more details.

FAQs

  • What is considered facial reconstructive surgery?

    Facial reconstructions are surgical procedures that alter the structures of the nose and other elements on the face in order to improve aesthetics and/or functional aspects. The deformities can be caused by accidents, tumors, diseases, infections, and other reasons, but Drs. Litner and Solieman aim to find a way to help all patients, even the most complicated cases.

  • Why are reconstructive surgeries performed?

    Facial reconstructive surgery is performed for two main reasons, which are to improve functionality or to enhance the appearance of a certain part of your face. Drs. Litner and Solieman perform nasal reconstruction procedures to help patients improve breathing, achieve their cosmetic goals, and improve their quality of life as a whole.

  • What is the difference between reconstructive surgery and plastic surgery?

    Reconstructive surgery is considered a medical necessity. Patients who undergo these procedures are usually looking to improve birth defects or deformities caused by trauma. Cosmetic surgery, on the other hand, is not deemed medically necessary and its only purpose is to improve the appearance of the patient.

  • How long does it take to recover from reconstructive surgery?

    All patients are different, so the downtime after each procedure can vary tremendously. In order to get an accurate estimate of the recovery time, you should make an appointment with double-board certified reconstructive surgeons in your area and discuss the goals you want to achieve.

  • Does insurance cover reconstructive surgery?

    In order to find out if your insurance will cover the cost of your reconstructive surgery, you need to contact your provider and inquire about this information. Generally speaking, reconstructive procedures are covered by most policies as long as they are a medical necessity, but make sure to speak to your insurance company beforehand.
