What's involved in the Craniofacial Surgery?

Craniofacial Surgery involves treatment of facial differences in both children and adults. The most common etiologies include congenital malformations, traumatic deformities, and disfigurements after surgery for cancer. For patients with these facial differences, the physical and mental toll for themselves and their families can be profound.

Expertise in dealing with these disorders requires not only a fellowship-trained Craniofacial Surgeon, but also a competent, coordinated, multidisciplinary team approach that can help you through this difficult time. For over 27 years, the New York Group for Plastic Surgery has been there for our New York patients providing experienced, precision surgery for craniofacial in NYC with a caring approach to patient care.

We offer Virtual Surgical Planning

We are one of the only centers in the country to be able to offer Virtual Surgical Planning of complex craniofacial reconstructions. It starts with a three-dimensional rendering of the patient’s craniofacial skeleton. In the virtual surgical environment, the facial anatomy can be manipulated in order to create the ideal reconstruction.

Customized, patient-specific surgical tools are then generated to help translate the virtual plan into reality. This exciting new technology allows precision planning and execution while shortening the operative time. Additionally, patients, as well as other treating physicians, are able to view the final reconstruction preoperatively.


Request your consultation and begin your journey to confidence. More than anything, you want a surgeon who connects with you on a personal and professional level, providing quality care to help you look and feel your very best for your craniofacial in New York City.
