Facial Abnormalities and Reconstructive Surgery

Dr Roger Woods provides plastic and reconstructive surgical care for a variety of congenital and acquired conditions affecting children and adolescents. These include:

  • Skin lesions and their removal with scar minimisation
  • Lumps and abnormalities in the craniofacial (head and neck) region, including congenital cysts and sinuses
  • Blood vessel abnormalities and birthmarks (Vascular malformations and Haemangiomas) particularly in the head and neck region
  • Cancerous lesions of the skin and soft tissue, including melanoma and sarcoma
  • Scar revision including the use of fat grafting for depressed scars of the facial area
  • Breast abnormalities including breast hypoplasia (undergrowth), hyperplasia (overgrowth) and asymmetry
  • Prominent ears

Surgical management of these conditions are at least partially rebatable by all leading private health funds. It is important to obtain a referral from your family doctor to be eligible for this.
