Reconstructive Surgery for Craniosynostosis

Q:

I was born with Craniosynostosis. I have undergone at least 4 surgeries to fix this (2 of which were reconstructive as a teenager). I would like to see if there is anything else that could be done to make my face more symmetrical, if it's even possible.

A:

Kate,

 You have been through allot. Yes, technology has gotten much better. There are some new things available. Fat Grafting to your face may be of assistance. Some examples of this technique utilized in facial rejuvenation can be found at http://garyculbertson.com/facial-plastic-surgery-before-and-after/. Look at the section MACS Face Lift/ Fat Grafting.

 If this is what you had in mind then, seek out an ASAPS Member in your local area familiar with Fat Grafting to the face. It can be a powerful tool for corrective plastic surgery. Best,

 

Gary R Culbertson, MD, FACS
