cleft lip, rhinoplasty, genioplasty
I love helping people breathe better and feel more confident! This gentleman has a history of a cleft lip, with severe difficulty breathing through his nostrils. I performed a rhinoplasty to straighten a deviated septum, and used the removed cartilage from the septum to make different grafts that helped to straighten and support the nose. We also chose to perform a genioplasty, moving the chin forward to balance his facial features. A revision of the red part of his cleft lip improved a small notch there. He and I are both thrilled with the results, and look forward to more of the swelling coming down over the next few months.
Cleft Lip, Nose and Palate
This sweet girl is seen soon after her palate repair at 9 months of age. Her primary lip and nose repair were performed earlier, for most patients usually at 3-6 months of age. The cleft palate is then repaired usually in a single stage at 9-12 months, as babbling begins and speech development starts taking off.
This timing tries to balance scarring (which can restrict growth of the palate and midface), with optimizing speech development.
Parry Romberg syndrome (progressive hemifacial atrophy)
Parry Romberg syndrome is a condition where usually half of a person’s face begins to waste away. This may involve skin and fat only, or can also affect the muscle, bone, and cause pain. Sometimes only a part of the face is involved, like the forehead or the cheeks. Other times, migraine headaches, changes in pigment, or shrinking of half of the tongue is seen. Most commonly Parry Romberg syndrome begins at puberty. We have seen patients of all ages affected, though, often after a viral infection or trauma. Treatment most commonly involves fat grafting. This involves liposuction of fat from an unaffected area like the flank, and transferring the fat in small amounts to the affected area. Typically anywhere from 1/3rd to 2/3rds of the transferred fat takes hold and persists. Treatment may involve multiple rounds of grafting to achieve reasonable symmetry, and sometimes is repeated over the years as facial fat and the transferred fat may age differently. Other options for treatment are available as well, including implants, bone grafts, and free tissue transfer. This patient is seen shortly after his first round of fat grafting.

Dr. Law is kind, courteous and thoroughly involved in the well being of his patients. When my 2 month old suffered a burn in the NICU, they brought him in to perform a skin graft. From the very beginning he took the time to walk me through and involve me in the process.
Had to have back surgery to have rods removed. Dr. Hoston performed the removal and Dr. Law stitched me up. After the surgery, my scar was actually surprisingly small. Dr. Law also has excellent bedside manners. He really enjoys his work and will go out of his way to meet his patient’s needs. Can’t recommend him enough.
