<p>Are you performing surgery for the right reasons?

Are you performing surgery for the right reasons?

Our clients often said that they felt better, more confident and at ease with a new face. Usually, maxillofacial surgery may not rekindle lost passion in a relationship or guaranteed a promotion; however, if you simply want to feel better and confident they will be a good reason!

<p>Can your current heath condition withstands the demand of a maxillofacial surgery?

Can your current heath condition withstands the demand of a maxillofacial surgery?

Well managed high blood pressure and diabetes are common diseases of internal medicine. Patients with these well managed conditions are qualified to undertake maxillofacial surgeries. Our disease screening standards are certified in hospital level. The clinic is well equipped to perform most procedures and anesthesia safely; however, Dr. Hsieh may have procedures in medical centers for patients with susceptible health conditions.

<p>Have you allocated enough time for recovery?</p>

Have you allocated enough time for recovery?

Every procedure needs a period of recovery. The surgical wounds require time to heal even if it is only one day or ten days. We are unable to hurry the natural healing process of the body. Please be patient and noted that without following the instructions for post-surgery cares, the prevalence for certain risks of surgical side-effects is higher. What we can do is to adjust the treatment plan closest to your requirements and needs. If you have only several days available, then surgery with less invasive procedures are better. These include the endoscopic face lift, liposuction, cheek pad, chin pad, small area rhinoplasty, minimally invasive tooth implant, and permanent lip augmentation. Some procedures require one to two weeks in recovery such as osteotomy, orthognathic surgery, large area face lift, osteoplasty, and bone implantation. The recovery period for each person is dependable on the condition of the person’s overall health and is varied between patients, thus, the time return to work is also varied. If having too many days off may cause a problem, we can arrange the surgery to be performed on a Thursday or a Friday so that only a week’s leave will give ten days in recovery time. Sometimes, it’s enough.
