New Surgery Spotlight highlights mandible reconstruction

IN THE NEW SURGERY SPOTLIGHT, Henry C. Vasconez MD, plans the harvest of a fibula osteocutaneous free flap to perform mandible reconstruction on a 21-year-old male with severe craniofacial microsomia and other congenital anomalies. In addition, the patient will also undergo a sagittal split mandibular osteotomy on the contralateral side, as well as a rotational LeFort 1 maxillary advancement in order to obtain improved symmetry and occlusion.

Dr. Henry Vasconez is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Lexington, Kentucky. In addition to private practice, he serves as a professor at the University of Kentucky. His interests include craniofacial surgery, pediatric plastic surgery, breast reconstruction and aesthetic surgery.
