Reconstructive Medicine

Reconstructive Medicine is a fast developing field of cosmetic Dermatology that, in its broadest sense, aims to restore the form, function and symmetry of the face using medical injectables, muscle relaxants, and skin revitalisation treatments, and avoid surgery altogether. Anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers have revolutionized non-surgical facial reconstruction. This is usually done for people after traumatic injuries, or also in cases where there is genetic or degenerative assymetry/injury of the facial features.

Our faces play a pivotal role in our daily social interactions, through expression of emotions, appearance and most importantly identity. The face is our carte visite, the place where our individuality and our personality is manifested instantaneously to people around us. It is understandable then that permanent scarring, trauma or genetic assymetry of the face caused can be profoundly debilitating for a persons wellbeing and their ability to reach they full potential. Dermal fillers and injectables are best-suited to those individuals who desire facial rejuvenation without the commitment of plastic surgery.
