What is Reconstructive Face Surgery?
Reconstructive facial surgery is a specialized area of facial plastic surgery that is designed to improve the function or appearance of facial structures due to disease, trauma, or congenital defects. Reconstructive surgery can not only improve a patient’s ability to perform daily activities like speaking and eating; it can also dramatically improve a patient’s self-confidence by restoring a more normal appearance.
How Much Does Facial Surgery Cost in West Long Branch, NJ?
The cost of face surgery depends on the extent of correction necessary and the type of surgery. During your initial consultation at Atlantic Surgical Associates, Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your goals and create a tailored treatment plan. Once a plan is developed, we can provide you with your treatment cost and help you understand any insurance coverage available. You can learn more about how to pay for treatment on our surgery financing page.
What is a Facial Fracture?
Facial fractures refer to any fractures of the facial bones. These fractures are divided into many types:
- Orbital fractures of the bone surrounding the eye
- Frontal sinus fractures of the forehead
- Nasal fractures of the septum or nose
- Zygomaticomaxillary (ZMC) fractures of the upper teeth, upper jaw, and cheek bones
- Mandibular fractures of the lower jaw
While facial fractures can be treated by many specialists, it’s generally crucial to see a facial fracture plastic surgeon as soon as possible after the injury if there are complications such as multiple fractures, visible asymmetry, changes in vision, pain while moving the jaw, or pain behind the eyes.

What is Recovery Like After Face Surgery?
Recovering from facial fracture surgery can be a long process as the bone heals. In some cases, reconstructive surgery may be performed in stages with the first intervention occurring as soon as possible after the injury. Depending on the level of correction, you may experience discomfort or pain during the initial recovery phase, as well as swelling and bruising. It will take several weeks for the bone to heal enough that physical activity will be safe.
