The lip tissue is delicate – trauma to the lips can result in damaged tissue that loses its functionality and attractive appearance. Burns, tears and disease can damage the skin and fatty tissue in the lips, impacting speech and other functions. Reconstructing the lips is a complex and intricate process, as both form and function need to be restored for optimum results. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center offers advanced lip reconstruction surgery at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
Any facial reconstruction surgery is complicated, but the necessary function and mobility of the lips make lip reconstruction very difficult. Restoring the lip shape can be completed with fat and skin grafting, but you also need to ensure the lips can move correctly. Lip mobility is necessary for forming sounds, smiling, kissing and many other functions. A successful lip reconstruction surgery restores as much mobility as possible, while creating natural-appearing, balanced lip shape.

Lip Trauma Repair
Skin cancer, burns, ripped piercings – there are many factors that can damage the lip tissue. Lip trauma can be devastating, both impacting the mouth function and the facial appearance. Lip reconstruction surgery can recreate the tissue by harvesting fatty tissue and skin from other areas of the body. Grafting procedures are almost always necessary to replace damaged tissue, along with precise reshaping to create the desired appearance and function. Dr. Koltz has the expertise and experience to achieve stunning results for his patients requiring lip trauma repair surgery.
Your lips and smile are one of the first features people notice. If you have damaged lips, there is hope with lip reconstruction surgery.
