Maxillofacial surgery is an operation to treat alterations of the face, mouth and neck.
Dr Birbe, a renowned maxillofacial surgeon, specialises in treating issues associated with the shape and size of the face, chewing issues (orthognathic surgery) surgical treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea, correcting post-traumatic facial deformities, and nose (rhinoplasty) and eyelid (blepharoplasty) surgery.
He is also an expert in jaw reconstruction surgeries when required for dental implants.
Plus, his team also handles oncological issues of the mouth, face and neck.
The approach to most of these problems is through the mouth, leaving no visible scars on the face.
This is why it is so important to have a solid foundation in oral surgery in order to provide excellent maxillofacial treatments.
