The lips are more than just a cosmetic feature that form a beautiful smile or seductive pout. Lips help you form words, affecting your speech as well as the appearance of your face. Lip deformities can be detrimental to your self-confidence and impact your ability to communicate with others. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, has extensive experience in the area of lip reconstruction surgery, giving his patients functional and beautifully-formed lips to improve their quality of life.

Facial reconstruction is a specialty area of plastic surgery that requires extensive education and training. Dr. Rosenberg completed an additional six years of specialized training in surgical enhancements for the face and neck. Not only is he double board certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, but he also has many years of experience using and expanding his skills. This includes extensive charitable work involving reconstruction for children with lip and other facial deformities. Dr. Rosenberg also specializes in reconstructive surgeries for facial paralysis, including smile/lip restoration.

Causes of Lip Deformities

Some people are born with lip deformities, while others obtain them later in life. The shape and movement of the lips are vital to speech and creating facial expressions. When the tissue is deformed or there are abnormalities affecting the nerves or muscles, the lips may have a poor appearance and are not able to function properly. Some of the causes of these deformities include:

  • Birth defects
  • Cleft lip or palate
  • Trauma to the lips
  • Bell’s palsy or other types of facial paralysis
  • Mohs surgery or oral cancers affecting the lips

Restoring damaged lips requires extensive skill to balance both form and function. If you or a family member requires lip reconstructive surgery, you will not find a more talented facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in NYC. Contact our practice in NYC or Upper East Side to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
