Head Neck Reconstruction
The head and neck region is one of the most complex areas of the body. The region contains your brain, eyes, ears, mouth, throat, and nose with which you need to breathe, eat, speak, hear and view the world. You also express many emotions with your facial muscles which is tremendously valuable for communication. There are complex nerves, muscles, bones, veins, and arteries that connect everything and keep things working together. Surgery that tries to recreate the working function of any of these structures is difficult. In addition, your face is what you show the world so it is important to reconstruct an appearance that looks as natural and normal as possible. For these reasons, the ability to find a balance between the form and function of the head and neck region presents a challenge to many surgeons.
