Taking care of faces: it’s what we do. We see patients with facial abnormalities and deformities and try to make them better. We treat conditions related to the aging face, trauma, congenital anomalies, skin cancer, and head and neck cancers. Each of these patients offers a unique opportunity to reconstruct the facial defect or improve the facial deformity. Those of us who treat patients requesting cosmetic procedures try to make them look better, younger, and more refreshed. In many cases, this creates an improved sense of well-being and a boost in self-esteem.
