Pandemics And Facial Plastics And Reconstructive Surgery
Operative Techniques in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
The purpose of this article is to review the impact of COVID-19 on the specialty of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Initially, COVID-19 caused significant disruption to facial plastic surgeon practices and patient care with cancellation of surgery and clinical practice. As medical practices resumed, facial plastic surgeons were resilient and adaptive. Reliance on technology helped to meet the needs of patients. There was a surge of facial plastic surgery interest and procedures as the pandemic wore on with recovery of many physician practices. COVID-19 created numerous challenges for facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons but also many opportunities. The facial plastic surgery community and the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery worked together to achieve best outcomes.
