Lip Reconstruction

New York NY Lip Augmentation Surgeon

The lips play a huge role in the appearance of a person’s face. Not only do they add an attractive quality to the face, but they play “roles” throughout the day. The lips express emotion, they are essential in proper speech, and they are necessary for proper chewing and eating. Those with abnormalities, deficits, or who have experienced trauma to the lips can gain invaluable improvement with expertly performed lip reconstruction by Dr. Maurice Khosh in Manhattan.

Lip reconstruction is a very complex surgical procedure that must accurately deal with the complex series of muscles that control the lips. Because there is a lack of any substantial fibrous framework around the mouth, it takes precision and accurate surgical knowledge to perform plastic surgery to the lip region. Every lip reconstruction procedure is done on an individualized basis. All lips, even of those within the same family, are different. Not to mention that the cause for needing lip reconstruction will vary from person to person.

Many patients who suffered from cancer of the mouth and lips desire to undergo reconstruction after their treatment period is over. If lesions were removed from the lips, the size and shape of the lips will vary and treatment must be customized to fit the needs of each patient. If any facial paralysis is present in a patient that interfere with speech, swallowing, or the ability to manage oral functions, Dr. Khosh will take an interdisciplinary approach to work with the patient’s other physicians in order to create a customized surgical approach that will be successful.

Dr. Maurice Khosh is an expert in addressing lip reconstruction and the needs that accompany them. Dr. Khosh can expertly perform tissue transfer techniques that restore the appearance of the lips as well as lip function. Dr. Khosh has helps patients who have been affected by cancer, tumor removal, congenital abnormalities such as cleft lips, lacerations due to dog bites, and other causes of trauma to the lips and facial region.

If you wish to learn more about lip reconstruction for yourself or a loved one, please contact the practice of Dr. Maurice Khosh. Dr. Khosh is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon who is recognized by patients and colleagues as an outstanding physician.

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.
