Your face is one of your strongest sources of self-identity. When unwanted changes occur, whether due to cancer, a car accident, a burn, or an unexpected outcome after surgery, the results can be very disconcerting. Facial reconstruction is the process of restoring you to your original state as best as is possible.

It is important to choose a surgeon that is familiar with the complexities of facial reconstruction. The face includes many intricate and complex structures that are quite different from one another – for example, your eyelids, ears, lips and nose are all part of your face, but are quite different from one another and require different techniques to correct.

Dr. Correa’s philosophy on facial reconstruction

“Facial reconstruction is one of my favorite areas of reconstruction as it is highly intricate and delicate, and demands the highest level of attention to detail.”
