NEW FROM THE OMS GUARDIAN

COSMETIC SURGERY AND THE ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGEON
Robert F. Guyette, DMD, MD - Treasurer of the OMSNIC Board

 

Cosmetic surgery, as defined by the Board of Cosmetic Surgery, means “procedures, techniques and principles focused on enhancing a patient’s appearance. Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry and proportion are the key goals.” By this definition, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons who perform orthognathic surgery could, theoretically, be considered cosmetic surgeons. Orthognathic surgery has the potential to make life changing cosmetic improvements to a patient. As a natural progression in their training, some OMS have elected to expand their ability to help patients by learning and including traditional facial cosmetic treatments into their practices.

 

In the 1980’s, pioneers in OMS learned about, and began performing, traditional cosmetic facial surgery. Today, these procedures are considered more common within the realm of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Currently, 14% of OMS insured by OMSNIC have opted for coverage to perform Cosmetic Maxillofacial Surgery including Facelift, Rhinoplasty and Blepharoplasty, as well as non-surgical procedures such as Botox, fillers, chemical peels and laser treatments.
