Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Since external deformities have a negative impact on your appearance, they often cause low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgery makes it possible to correct many imperfections and changing how you look also changes how you feel about yourself. Fortunately, at The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts, Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) performs many types of surgeries to correct flaws allowing her patients to once again be satisfied with their outside appearance. Dr. V is part of an elite group of physicians who is double-board certified in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology or Head & Neck Surgery. Combining the specialties of Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) medicine gives her vast expertise and she is trusted as a respective authority in this field nationwide. Dr. V sees patients in the Virginia area and from around the world who come to her for the most safe and effective reconstructive and facial plastic surgery available.

The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts offers a full spectrum of cosmetic and reconstructive treatments including:

  • Facial Surgeries: Facial surgeries can be performed to correct facial defects from congenital birth defects to injury and trauma.
  • Scar Revision: Although most scars can never be completely removed, it is possible to camouflage their appearance and The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts offers effective facial scar revision procedures to help improve the color, size, and texture of scarring.
  • Nasal Reconstruction: Restoring the form and function of your nose following skin cancer removal or traumatic injury is one of the greatest challenges in facial plastic surgery. Through meticulous attention to detail, Dr. V is able to achieve overwhelming success for nasal reconstruction.
  • Ear Reconstruction: Ear reconstruction is often beneficial for those suffering from microtia, a congenital condition in which the ear is severely deformed or absent. Dr. V is skilled in microtia surgery and she can restore a more natural appearance through reconstructive surgery. Microtia can affect one or both ears and hearing may also be affected. The surgery for microtia is a very delicate procedure that requires detailed knowledge of both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery).
