The delicate tissue and skin of the lips can be easily damaged due to auto accidents, trauma, disease and other factors. Lips are very important to both the aesthetics and movement of the mouth, impacting speech and facial expression. Dr. Harry Salinas at HMS Plastic Surgery is a highly experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon who offers lip reconstruction plastic surgery at our center in Miami, FL.
Injuries and trauma to the lips can rip or damage the skin and tissue. Falls, motor vehicle crashes, ripped lip piercings, burns and other trauma can change the lip skin and fatty tissue, as well as the movement. Skin and oral cancers can require that lip tissue be removed, impacting form and function. Whenever the lips are damaged, reconstructive plastic surgery is the best option to repair the tissue and restore the aesthetics and lip movement.
Lip Repair Reconstructive Surgeon
Restoring both function and appearance to the lips after cancer surgery or lip trauma is a complex procedure. Dr. Harry Salinas is a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has spent years performing reconstructive procedures for many cancer patients in the Miami area, as well as trauma repair. His unique expertise and experience are valuable to perform the needed skin and tissue grafting that is required for lip reconstruction. Dr. Salinas uses his surgical skills and artistic eye to create beautifully formed lips that are also functional for smiling, speech and other movements.
Lip damage can be a traumatic experience. Most people take their lip function and form for granted until they sustain an injury or disease that deforms the skin and tissue. Lip reconstruction plastic surgery can restore damaged lips, improving both your appearance, function and quality of life.
