Craniofacial Surgery, or Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, is a subspecialty of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, requiring 2 years of additional training and examinations. This is quite distinct from ‘Maxillofacial Surgery’, which is a subspecialty of Dental Surgery.
Craniofacial Surgeons perform complex reconstructive operations involving the skull, the bones of the face and the soft tissues of the face.
Most patients undergoing Craniomaxillofacial surgery have some form of congenital deformity or asymmetry, have been treated for tumours, or have suffered facial trauma.
Dr O’Mahony specialises in both adult and paediatric Craniofacial Surgery, and has a special interest in the treatment of Cleft Lip and Palate and infant skull deformities (Craniosynostosis). Her subspecialty qualification in Craniomaxillofacial Surgery also compliments her interest in all forms of Facial Plastic Surgery, both reconstructive and cosmetic.
