How Is Reconstructive Facial and Hand  Surgery Performed?

For the hand, Dr. McIntosh will focus on reconstructing the skin, tendons, bones, nerves and arteries in the best possible way depending on the type and severity of the injury. Most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis with a general or local anesthetic.

For facial fractures, Dr. McIntosh will make the necessary repairs through discreet incisions. Milder cases may benefit from endoscopy, a minimally invasive type of surgery that uses a tiny incision and a small camera for precise, intricate corrections. More extensive surgeries may require a bone or skin graft, screws and metal plates, and a hospital stay during initial recovery.

The cost varies widely depending on the location and extent of reconstructive plastic surgery needed. Most insurance companies will cover at least part of the expense for this non-cosmetic procedure. Dr. McIntosh will discuss the costs with you at your consultation.
