Surgical Techniques for Treating Maxillofacial Tumors

Posted on 2/2/2024 by Weo Admin
Image of a dental professional checking a woman patient's mouth. Maxillofacial tumors tend to affect your face, jaws, or any other surrounding structures. These tumors necessitate surgical intervention to ensure proper treatment and functionality of your oral structures. Our surgeon will recommend the type of surgery depending on the tumor size, type, and location. Here are some of the most common surgical approaches that are useful in managing maxillofacial tumors:

Excisional Biopsy

Excisional biopsy is most recommended for small tumors. It primarily removes the entire tumor for therapeutic or therapeutic purposes. Our surgeons will excise the entire tumor together with the margin of healthy tissues to ensure there is complete removal.

Surgical Resection

Surgical resection is recommended for larger tumors. The process can either be done under local or general anesthesia, depending on the size of the tumor. This surgery will remove a portion of the tumor or the affected area. However, our surgeon might recommend reconstruction surgery after the surgical resection.

Microvascular Reconstruction

Microvascular reconstruction is often employed mainly after tumor resection. This type of surgery aims to restore the function and aesthetics of your face. It primarily involves transferring tissues, including blood supply, from another part of your body to reconstruct the area.

Free Flap Reconstruction

Free flap surgery is an advanced reconstructive surgical approach that entails relocating skin from one body region to another. This intricate procedure involves the transplantation of tissue that remains connected to a significant vein or artery. The transplanted tissue is meticulously affixed to the targeted area, typically through a graft or flap, facilitating the restoration of damaged or injured regions with precision and expertise.

Free flap transplantation exhibits optimal reparative efficacy in addressing the voids resulting from the surgical removal of oral and maxillofacial tumors, boasting a notably low occurrence of complications. This procedure stands out for its exceptional ability to rectify defects with a heightened success rate, offering a distinct advantage in reconstructive surgery for oral and maxillofacial conditions. If you are considering maxillofacial tumor surgery, our team of experts will review your condition and decide the best surgical approach for your specific case.
