Restoring Your Full Quality of Life

Given that craniofacial reconstructive surgery is a blanket term, no two surgeries are ever exactly the same. Instead of using a one-size-fits-all approach, Dr. Fisher prefers to work closely with his patients. He’ll get to know the concerns and issues that brought you or your child to him and will work together with you to develop a tailored treatment plan.

Dr. Fisher will explore everything you might need to know, talking you through details about the procedure itself, explaining incision placements, and detailing your aftercare instructions. This will also be your chance to ask any questions you might have about the surgery. The goal is to ensure your comfort and keep you informed, every step of the way.

Depending on the extent of the procedure, craniofacial surgery is often performed at the hospital under general anesthesia, although some procedures such as nasal fractures are done on an outpatient basis. Depending on the type and extent of surgery, you or your child may need to remain under observation for a few days, or may go home the same day.

Recovery After

Craniofacial Surgery

The specifics of your recovery period will depend on the extent of your surgical plan. Before your procedure, Dr. Fisher and his team will detail the specific recovery period and make sure you know exactly what to expect. You’ll be given precise aftercare instructions, and any medication you might need to ensure your comfort as you or your child recover. In most cases, complete healing takes between six and eight weeks, at which point you’ll be able to enjoy a fully restored quality of life.
