Reconstructive Facial Plastic Surgery
Reconstructive surgery is a highly specialized form of plastic surgery that is designed to restore proper function while correcting defects and abnormalities of the face and/or body. Board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Joseph Williams received specialized training at both New York University and Emory University in Atlanta, GA. For more than twenty years, Dr. Williams has helped restore both functionality and appearance to patients with facial abnormalities, whether they are due to trauma, disease, or craniofacial defects, by utilizing the least invasive and most up-to-date surgical techniques.

Craniofacial surgery is a surgical subspecialty that deals with congenital and acquired deformities of the head, skull, face, neck, jaws and associated structures. In the majority of cases, these issues are detected and treated at birth or at a very young age, but they may also be the result of accidental trauma or disease. Dr. Williams has extensive experience utilizing the most advanced surgical techniques for facial reconstruction and the correction of facial abnormalities.
Maxillofacial surgery is a type of specialty reconstructive surgery used to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, defects, and/or injuries of the face, head, neck, and jaws. It generally differs from craniofacial surgery in that it focuses on the tooth-bearing bones in the lower half of the skull and may in some cases overlap with the work of an oral surgeon.
