Reconstructive Surgery for Facial Deformation
This talk concerns personal experiences of the patients with facial deformities that Hiroshi has encountered over the last 25 years as a craniofacial plastic reconstructive surgeon. Dealing with a classification of what is normal and how this helps us manage asymmetry caused by tumours, trauma and previous surgery. A brief history of the evolution of plastic reconstructive techniques will be described and Haroshi will also discuss the types of craniofacial deformities that he manages as part of a multidisciplinary team. Lastly, Haroshi will talk about how this experience has helped him manage severe facial deformities encountered in Ethiopia, where he operates every year for the charity Facing Africa.
