The delicate skin and fatty tissue on the lips can be damaged from trauma, disease and other factors. Not only does lip damage impact your speech and mouth function, but it changes your smile and facial appearance. Dr. Obaid Chaudhry at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery is a talented reconstructive surgeon who performs lip reconstruction surgery in Los Angeles, CA.
Lips are vulnerable to injury and disfigurement from any type of trauma to the tissue. Once damaged, scar tissue can form that is less flexible than the natural lip tissue. Lips can also be deformed from birth defects and disease that impact lip function and aesthetics. Lip reconstruction surgery can use tissue grafting to create a new lip structure that looks and functions like natural lips.
Dr. Chaudhry spent a year of fellowship training at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital learning advanced plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques. For patients with lip disfigurement, Dr. Chaudhry can explore the best options for reshaping the lips, including using fat and skin grafting to reform the lip structure.
Lip Trauma Repair
When the lip tissue is torn, burned or removed due to trauma, lip trauma reconstruction surgery can restore the shape and function. Patients who experienced lip trauma during vehicle accidents, sports injuries or violence may have disfigurement that impacts their appearance and mouth movement. Dr. Chaudhry and our team at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery offer lip trauma repair to achieve natural-appearing lips with reconstruction surgery.
Lip repair is a complex procedure. Fat and skin may need to be harvested from other areas of the body to graft to the lips. Dr. Chaudhry uses cutting-edge techniques to perform scar revision and reconstruction to create lips that have natural form and function.
If you or a family member have deformed lips from a birth defect, trauma or disease, lip reconstruction surgery could offer improved appearance and function.
