Lip Reconstruction Surgery
The skin and tissue that form the lips are very delicate. Burns, lacerations and other types of trauma can easily damage this fragile area. Medical conditions like skin cancer and congenital birth defects can also damage lip shape. When the lips have been disfigured, it can impact more than just your appearance. Damaged lips can affect your speech and mouth function, as well as change the beauty of your mouth and face. Our experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, at LM Medical NYC, is one of the top plastic surgeons in New York City who can perform lip reconstruction surgery.
The lips are more than just dark skin and fatty tissue. They pucker, purse and move to enunciate words and create various mouth expressions. When the lips have been damaged from trauma, it takes more to allow for natural movement. This can require skin grafting, fat transfers and intricate facial reconstructive surgery to restore both form and function to the lips.
