I have been an oral and maxillofacial surgery for more than 30 years and my ability to help patients has fully satisfied me. I've taught in dental school and I work with residents in hospitals--all of this has allowed me to be a better surgeon.
I have gradually increased my knowledge allowing me to better guide my answers about surgical techniques that I previously was not familiar with. Some new findings or techniques are being developed or exposed all the time and the excitement of learning something new is so fulfilling in that I can help all who contact me in ways.
It is recognized that oral and maxillofacial surgery is the only specialty that fully links medicine and dentistry. That is why we are repeatedly asked by physicians to help their patients who might have previously been unable to obtain needed treatment or forced to see a physician who was not trained in oral surgery.

Mary -it is a little difficult to diagnose that area. I can't tell if that area of swelling is firm or soft just from the picture, but I would suggest that you make an appointment with a board certified
Jackie - Most likely an exact duplication of what you originally had will not occur. Scar tissue from the surgeries will alter the skin attachments and appearance. That can hopefully be taken into account
Jackie - First of all, the lack of functioning of the bottom lip should resolve with time and seeing a physical or speech therapist to work on restoring the proper function of the muscles of the lower
Sanjay - The dark areas are either cysts or areas of infection, like I have told you in the past. The larger areas above these that are gray in color are the sinuses, but one has nothing to do with the
Absolutely no!! If done properly, the removal of cysts done with sedation and local anesthesia should produce a little soreness, easily controlled with mild pain medication. A long term use of pain medication
