Scar revision surgery will facilitate improved scar aesthetics. Unsightly scars may be the result of poor healing, increased tension on the suture line (stitches), dehiscence (falling apart) of the suture line, or a variety of other reasons. Scar revision surgery can help correct the unsightliness of the original scar.
Paralysis or paresis (weakness) of facial cranial nerves may result in facial paralysis/asymmetry. This asymmetry/weakness may be the result of congenital factors (i.e. cranial nerve damage), or may be acquired through trauma or disease. Facial reanimation surgically facilitates improved facial movement on the affected side.
Congenital torticollis presents within the first 4 weeks of life. The cause of congenital torticollis is unclear. It may include a history of; birth trauma, intrauterine malposition or damage to the sternocleidomastoid muscle in the neck. Congenital torticollis presents as bending of the head towards the affected muscle, with the chin tilted towards the opposite side. Deformational plagiocephaly may be seen as a result of torticollis. Early identification of the abnormal head shape, and possible torticollis allows for non-surgical interventions.
Alopecia refers to hair loss due to the immune system mistakenly attacking the hair follicle.
