An established AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery center in Texas, Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery is known for its high quality cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. The plastic surgeons are offering effective mandibular distraction procedures and helping to set right face asymmetry in infants. The treatment is specifically designed to help children with micrognathia lead a normal childhood

Distraction Osteogenesis for pediatric patients at this reliable surgical center can improve the following medical conditions

• Cranial synostosis
• Obstructive sleep apnea
• Midface retrusion
• Temporo-mandibular joint ankylosis

The surgeons perform the procedure to reposition the jaw and restore the facial symmetry by harmonizing the lower and upper teeth. Advanced techniques are used to effectively open up the obstructed airway and enhance the ability to consume food.

The jaw repositioning surgery involves several steps and takes about six weeks to complete. Incisions are made on either side of the jaw bone for the placement of a jaw distraction device. The device is gradually adjusted to achieve the required projection, which allows for new bone formation in the resulting space. The distraction device is removed once the bone has solidified and healed.

Once the treatment is successfully completed, the operated jaw grows in proportion to the rest of the face. The plastic surgeon usually recommends a repeat distraction procedure for infants with Treacher Collins syndrome or facial clefting syndrome.

The surgeons are focused on providing superior results with minimal complications. With this goal in mind, they use advanced surgical techniques and technologies to perform mandibular distraction procedures. The support staff here is devoted to ensuring individualized care and making the experience as comfortable as possible for both the children and their parents. The surgeons at this plastic surgery center are also known for offering services to children with facial disfigurements regardless of financial resources.
