Facial paralysis surgery or reconstruction refers to a series of reconstructive procedures that are designed to restore symmetry of the face following Bell’s palsy, trauma, or congenital absence of the facial nerve. Dr. Andre Panossian is an internationally-recognized expert in the treatment of facial paralysis and addresses virtually all causes of facial nerve disorder. There are many ways to categorize the causes of facial paralysis, but most are based on facial nerve injury, compression, or inflammation.
A pediatric plastic surgeon is someone who has completed an accredited program at a pediatric hospital and devotes a large part of his or her practice to pediatric reconstructive surgery. Dr. Andre Panossian has completed two separate fellowships in the world of pediatrics. After completing his residency at the University of Southern California, he completed a clinical fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, considered to be one of the best pediatric hospitals in the world.
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic condition that causes the development of tumors on virtually any nerve in the body, including the brain and spinal cord. It is usually diagnosed in childhood and can be inherited from an affected parent in approximately one-half of patients. In other words, there is roughly a 50 percent chance that an affected parent will pass on the condition. In the remainder of patients, there is no known previous family history. Currently, there are 3 types of neurofibromatosis identified.
Vascular birthmarks, also known as vascular anomalies, refer to a group of blood vessel disorders characterized by tumors and malformations. The common infantile hemangioma is a frequent example of this condition. They are largely benign in nature, but can pose some functional and cosmetic problems. They are usually present at or around the time of birth. Some of these birthmarks, such as the common hemangioma, go away on their own, but others such as vascular malformations can continue to be a problem for a lifetime.
Facial plastic surgery includes face lift, brow lift, neck lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), and placement of facial implants (chin, cheek, lips). The goal in all of these instances is to restore a youthful look. Other procedures such as facial liposuction or fat injection are used to contour the face and restore facial proportions. Non-surgical options such as Botox®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Voluma®, and other facial fillers are used to reduce wrinkles and restore volume lost by aging. They may be preferred by individuals seeking only a subtle to moderate change.
When it comes to changing or improving the way you look, there should be no compromise. Today’s cosmetic surgery market has given rise to a large number of underqualified surgeons and non-surgeons who treat plastic surgery as a business and not a passion. As a result, much of today’s plastic surgery patients need corrective or revision plastic surgery to undo an undesirable result. Dr. Panossian fully believes in “doing it right the first time.” His strong background in reconstructive surgery allows him to offer exceptional head-to-toe cosmetic surgery options.
