Dr. Morrissette is one of the few remaining oral and facial surgeons performing reconstructive facial surgery in Ventura County. When a patient is born with a congenital facial deformity, it is often necessary to perform reconstructive surgery. This surgery can also be performed after a traumatic injury or previous surgery. In either case, Dr. Morrissette will perform your surgery using the most accurate technique called Virtual Surgical Planning. This involves using a cat scan of your face and skull to recreate the surgery on a three dimensional model on a computer. This information is then sent directly to a modeling machine to fabricate surgical guides that will be used for your surgery. Having performed this surgery the traditional way for many years, Dr. Morrissette believes these latest advances in technology provide a significantly more accurate result!
Extensive Experience in Facial Trauma Surgery
Dr. Morrissette has spent over two decades as a reconstructive surgeon, and has an exceptional degree of experience and knowledge in this area of surgery. Whether the face has been damaged due to impact, such as a vehicle accident, or a person has been born with a facial congenital anomaly, speak with our office about setting up a consultation for reconstructive surgery. We pride ourselves on our thorough treatment planning process, patient safety and in achieving results that look as natural as possible.
Resolving Serious Facial Damage
Dr. Morrissette's experience in facial trauma is very extensive, and he continues to serve at the Ventura County Medical Center for facial trauma cases that arrive at the ER. Facial trauma can be the result of a vehicle accident, a fall, a sports injury, an assault, or a range of other situations in which the facial bones or facial tissues are seriously damaged. Correcting these problems takes a high level of skill and expertise. Your physical condition and appearance should be evaluated at our practice as the first step in facial restoration.
Experience Above and Beyond the Ordinary
As a cosmetic facial surgeon, Dr. Morrissette has extensive training in all facial cosmetic surgery procedures. His residency program was one of the first residency programs to incorporate facial cosmetic surgery as part of their training over 25 years ago. In addition to this training, Dr. Morrissette spent 3 months on the plastic surgery service to specifically gain more experience in cosmetic facial surgery. In order to keep up with the latest techniques in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Morrissette trains with other prominent surgeons all over the country several times a year. Dr. Morrissette is well-qualified to evaluate your case and advise you about what can be done to help you restore a better appearance. If your case is unique and requires specialized treatment, Dr. Morrissette may refer you to a cosmetic surgeon that only specializes in that area. We are committed to performing facial surgeries that gives the face a balanced, natural look. When the facial skin, muscles, or bone structures have been affected by aging, it may require several surgeries to bring about a better appearance. Every case is different and we urge you to come in for a consultation.
