Facial Surgery - Questions and Answers


 

Facial surgeries generate questions that result in anxiety before, during and after plastic surgery. At ReNova Plastic surgery of Pittsburgh, we believe that answering those questions improve the state of mind of our patients, favoring successful outcomes.

Please find questions related to Facial surgery, Eyelid surgery, and Rhinoplasty. Dr. Clavijo answered them with his systematic approach. Analyzing the problem, identifying possible reasons for them, and proposing advice that may help solving the issues.

Be aware that the accuracy of the answers may be limited due to the lack of physical examination, not being the surgeon of the case, and not being part of the decision making of the cases.
