Cause and target of reconstruction

01Excessive bone resection of facial bone contouring. It becomes a so-called “dog jaw”
           or may show a stigma of plastic surgery makeover.

02Insufficient bone resection that leaves postoperative issues unresolved and unsatisfactory.

03Facial bone contouring with removal of large amount of bone improves bone lines,
           but the skin has not been considered; such facial lines appear old and droopy.

04Loosening of plate and screw becomes non-union

05Fractured or bumpy chin due to surgeries performed by an inexperienced surgeons.

06Pain, cheek drooping and inflammation after surgery would be possible after surgery,
           because of Malnunion


Compared to the initial surgery, the deformed facial bones and soft tissues are adhered badly to cause difficulties in reconstruction. Also, the muscles that must be attached are detached from the bone from the previous surgery, so the original shape cannot be restored from reconstructing only the bone.

Above all, reconstruction could be a massive burden on a patient, in comparison to the prior surgery. Blessed with a record of continuous voluntary services in reconstructive surgery and clinical competence for many years, Apgujeong YK Plastic surgery Clinic’s staff realizes such pain perceived by these patients. For that reason, our staff will put in every effort to accurately diagnosis, and safely operate in order to avoid reconstructive surgeries.
