  • Improved function: Mouth, face and jaw reconstructive surgery can restore function to structures that have been damaged or lost, allowing patients to speak, chew and swallow more effectively. This can improve the overall quality of life and reduce discomfort or pain associated with these functions.

  • Enhanced appearance: Reconstructive surgery can also improve the appearance of the face and jaw, which can positively impact a patient’s self-esteem and confidence. This surgery can be particularly important for patients who have experienced disfigurement or trauma to these areas.

  • Reduced risk of complications: By repairing or replacing damaged or missing tissue, reconstructive surgery can reduce the risk of further complications or health problems.
