Craniofacial Reconstruction Before & After Case 1
With a thin layer of skin and soft tissue over the brain, he was at high risk of trauma, infection, visual obstruction, and psychosocial harm.
Through the generous support and guidance of LEAP, Dr. Craig Hobar, and the Cheryl Lamon Memorial Fund, we were able to bring him to the United States and Medical City Dallas to perform the repair.
Dr. David Sacco performed the critical neurosurgical repair, removing nonfunctional brain tissue, and repairing the dura.
With Dr. Evan Beale, we used a pericranial flap, split calvarial bone grafts, orbital bone medialization, canthopexies, and skin tailoring, to provide further bone and soft tissue reconstruction.
He spent a few days in the hospital under close watch. He is seen at 7 weeks here, happy and thriving!
Craniofacial Reconstruction Before & After Case 2
Anatomic analysis showed insufficient skin and bulk of the upper lid and brow.
The forehead and brow grafted skin was advanced downwards, and filled in with a dermal fat graft to match the normal thickness of eyebrow tissue.
The lower eyelids were softened with fat transposition and fat grafting, to help her feel a little more refreshed using an incision on the inner side of the eyelid.
We agree that it’s a great step, and we look forward to helping offer some hair transplantation and further refinement with small in-office procedures as desired!
Craniofacial Reconstruction Before & After Case 3
He came to us to correct his anterior open bite so that he could chew and speak more normally.
We were also able to improve his facial profile and balance, and he is breathing better now.
He is seen here at 6 weeks, with plans for further orbital and nasal reconstruction in the future.
