Cheek Reconstruction

New York NY Cheek reconstruction

The cheeks give an incredible balance to the facial appearance. Full, high cheeks have long been associated with a youthful appearance, and it is the skin of the cheeks that often gives the face its appealing glow.

Cheek deformities, injuries to the cheekbone, and cheek mass that is removed during skin cancer removal can leave the face with an unflattering appearance. Since the cheek is one of the highlights of the face, deformities are often quite noticeable. Dr. Maurice Khosh is a facial plastic surgeon who has the knowledge, skill, and experience to restore the natural contour of the cheek with normal skin cover.

Injuries to the face are common occurrences to those who are involved in sports and recreational activities. Bats, balls, and other objects that fly through the air have the ability to cause a great deal of damage when they come in contact with the face. Cheek fractures are also common occurrences as a result of motor vehicle accidents and assault injuries. A CT scan is almost always necessary to fully evaluate the extend of bony fractures because of how they can affect other facial features. Repair of cheek fractures and injuries are most often accomplished through hidden incisions inside the mouth or the lower eyelid.

When facial cancer surgery is required, the Mohs technique is most often used. Dr. Khosh is an expert in repair of cheek skin defects after Mohs excision. While everyone is thankful to be free of cancer, many people feel self-conscious with their “battle scars” because of the prominence they have on the face. Skin flaps and secondary laser skin treatments can erase any visible signs of the skin cancer or evidence of its removal from the cheek region.

If you are interested in cheek reconstruction in any form, Dr. Maurice Khosh of Manhattan is a name that has been trusted in very detailed cases. Dr. Khosh is an affiliate member of the Vascular Birthmarks Institute of New York, a practice that specializes in repairing extremely intricate cases of skin malformations. Dr. Khosh’s practice is dedicated to providing excellence, and we are here to help you.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
