What happens during facial reconstruction surgery?

How surgery for head and face deformities is performed depends largely on the type and severity of the deformity and the person's condition.

The procedure involves the skull (cranium), brain, nerves, eyes, and the bones and skin of the face. A collaboration between a plastic surgeon and a neurosurgeon is often needed. Facial reconstruction surgery is done while you are deep asleep and pain-free (under general anesthesia).
