Craniofacial syndromes are rare or orphan diseases, genetic, chromosomal or epigenetic in origin, which affect a small percentage of the population.
Many patients were treated during their childhood, but reconstruction techniques have been fine-tuned in recent years and there are now other ways to help adults obtain better results, notably through the design of custom facial implants thanks to advances such as 3D printing or facial fat injections to achieve symmetrization or enhance certain areas. There have also been improvements in nose and chin surgeries.
This means that patients with hemifacial microsomia or Treacher-Collins syndrome can sometimes benefit from additional procedures that had not been available until now.
Dr. Bergeron offers reconstructive surgery for craniofacial syndromes for patients aged 15 and older. Contact him for an evaluation.
