The effect of a facial difference goes well beyond appearance: it can lead to social isolation, low self esteem, severe depression, and functional difficulty in seeing, hearing, breathing, eating, and speaking. In addition to reconstructive surgery, children with facial differences require years of multiple pre-operative procedures, orthodontic treatment, post-operative treatment, secondary surgery, and counseling.
myFace offers the gift of confidence and hope to children and adults with craniofacial conditions and their families by ensuring them access to cutting-edge care from the world-class practitioners of The myFace Center for Craniofacial Care at NYU Langone Health.
