Facial Reconstructive Procedures
We offer help to patients who suffer from facial injuries, skin cancer defects, or rhinoplasty (nose surgery) that has not ultimately met a patient’s goals. Facial reconstructive surgery procedures from our Kansas City and Johnson County plastic surgeons are designed to renew and restore your appearance with results that can appear natural and beautiful. Dr. J. David Kriet and Dr. Clinton D. Humphrey are experienced and skilled facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons well versed in the latest reconstructive surgery techniques.

All rhinoplasty outcomes depend on the surgeon’s artistic vision and technique. The outcome is also significantly influenced by unpredictable variability in a patient’s healing process. Our facial plastic surgeons are regional experts in revision, or secondary, rhinoplasty that can improve aesthetic appearance or restore function.
Drs. J. David Kriet and Clinton D. Humphrey are specialists in nasal reconstruction and rhinoplasty surgery following nasal trauma or skin cancer removal (Mohs surgery). These procedures restore both aesthetic and functional deformities.
Ear reconstruction is often beneficial for those suffering from microtia, a congenital condition in which the ear is severely deformed or absent. Our surgeons are skilled in microtia surgery and can restore a more natural appearance.
Skin Cancer Surgery
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. It is increasing in frequency and is seen in younger patients each year. We work with our dermatologist and Mohs surgeon colleagues to detect and treat skin cancer as early as possible.
The most common site affected by skin cancer is the head and neck region. Mohs surgery is the treatment of choice for skin cancers in this sensitive area. Patients with large or complex defects after Mohs surgery are frequently treated in our practice. Whenever possible, we coordinate the Mohs surgery cancer removal and facial reconstruction preoperatively.
Although most scars can never be completely removed, it is possible to camouflage their appearance. Our practice offers effective facial scar revision procedures to help improve the color, size, and texture of scarring.
Facial Trauma Repair
Injuries to the face are devastating. They may impact facial function and diminish self-esteem. Dr. J. David Kriet and Dr. Clinton D. Humphrey are experienced in the repair of facial fractures and soft tissue injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents, assault, sporting events, or even dog bites.
