What Kinds of Soft Tissue Reconstruction Are Often Done?


Posted on 9/25/2023 by Greater Charlotte Oral and Facial Surgery
What Kinds of Soft Tissue Reconstruction Are Often Done?The face's soft tissue injuries are common and harder to spot, unlike broken or dislocated bones and teeth. Soft tissue injuries affect the non-bony areas of the mouth and face, including the cheeks, gums, lips, and tongue. Abnormalities in these areas could be assumed as minor as there are no visible fractures or broken teeth. However, these injuries could leave a scar or lasting damage. Soft tissue injuries and diseases are emergency conditions and should be addressed immediately to prevent permanent damage to the facial area.

when would I need soft tissue reconstruction


After suffering soft tissue injury, one might feel pain or discomfort from the trauma. Injury or trauma is the most common need for reconstruction. Due to injury, conditions built up over time also necessitate soft tissue reconstruction as skin might have healed abnormally. When one suffers from cancerous tumors and gets removed, soft tissue reconstruction may be required to restore cosmetic appearance. Soft tissue is also conducted in children with congenital problems like cleft lip condition. Surgery helps them regain function as well as looks. Soft tissue reconstruction is also widely used in cosmetic procedures to improve the eyes. These cosmetic procedures involve invasive and non-invasive treatments like Botox, lip fillers, and Rhinoplasty.

soft tissue treatment


OMS surgeons are trained in gentle laceration treatment and other facial reconstruction procedures. Treatment must begin with examining the affected area through imaging technology through CT scanning to provide a precise and detailed treatment plan well suited to the patient's needs. Damaged soft tissue must be replaced to ensure perfect functionality and aesthetic results. Soft tissue reconstruction uses local soft tissue from other body parts with facial tissue characteristics. OMS surgeons could also use free tissue transfer and regional flaps to repair a large area of damaged soft tissue. Treatment involves the interconnection of surgical professionals like ENT surgeons and plastic surgeons.
