Reconstruction Of The Head And Neck

The head and neck region is a unique part of our anatomy that serves the critical physical, emotional, social and psychological functions that are inseparable from each other.  Our face is an integral part of our identity and is central to our interaction with the world.

The facial skeleton carries an important protective function for the brain and eyes and is critical for breathing and chewing.  The facial musculature also imparts speech, human emotion and expressivity, all of which are essential for social function.

Disease states affecting the head and neck region may have significant effect on individuals’ quality of life and social integration. Reconstruction of defects in this region has similarly profound benefits to individuals’ form, function and psychological well-being.

Dr Ralph Millard, one of the pioneers of plastic surgery, once stated: “When a part of a person is lost, it should be replaced in kind, bone for bone, muscle for muscle, hairless skin for hairless skin, and eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”.  To restate this, deficient tissue should be replaced with tissue of similar characteristics as far as possible.
