Facial Reconstruction & Maxillofacial Surgery

As a diplomate of both the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Monasebian is surgically trained to perform Plastic, Reconstructive and Maxillofacial procedures. He works with dental specialists to facilitate placement of osseointegrated dental implants by bone grafting, nerve repositioning and jaw surgery. He has successfully evaluated and treated patients with injury to the mandibular, lingual, mental and infraorbital nerves. He has also worked with aesthetic dentists by performing soft tissue cosmetic surgery on patients that have undergone cosmetic dentistry.

Whether the patient is a newborn with a cleft lip or a senior citizen in need of a mandible augmentation for future rehabilitation, each person is evaluated and a precise, individualized plan is determined by Dr. Monasebian.

The term Maxillofacial Surgery covers a large variety of surgeries that treat many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, skull, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region of the body.

TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, disorders may be corrected through maxillofacial surgery. Disc displacement, the most common TMJ disorder, is usually very painful, sometimes causing a “pop” or “click” whenever the patient opens his or her mouth.

Malocclusion or incorrect bite can be corrected with a series of reconstructive and orthognathic surgery and maxillomandibular advancement. Surgical correction of facial asymmetry may also be used to align a patient’s jaw and mouth – which will both assist in speech and eating, as well as evening out facial aesthetics.

Oral cancer may cause various problems for the patient. Reconstructive surgery may be necessary for bone grafting and surgical flaps to fill in areas of the mouth that may have had to be removed because of the cancer.

Working with specialists in the Medical and Dental fields, Dr. Monasebian has performed many reconstructions of the face and jaws. Jaw reconstruction involves adding bone to the jaws that has melted away over time or has been lost to cancer or accident. In addition, bones of the face may be enhanced through the use of implants to the chin, cheek, nose and jaws. Facial recontouring involves the removal of bone that is excessive in nature. Again all of these procedures are performed to restore facial harmony.
