Facial plastic surgery can also be reconstructive surgery. If you can imagine how many injuries, birth defects, or disfigurement issues arise in our imperfect lives, there is a procedure that can help improve the problem.
Facial plastic surgery by New Jersey surgeon Dr. Nicole Schrader can be performed to not only correct aging, but to correct facial defects such as cleft lips, and facial defects after skin cancer removal.

For many surgical procedures, the method of choice has shifted from traditional open surgery to the use of less invasive techniques. Minimally invasive surgery is surgery done with the aid of a viewing scope and specially designed surgical instruments. The scope allows the surgeon to perform major surgery through several tiny openings without the need for a large incision.
In reconstructive surgery, minimally invasive procedures use newer technologies, such as a laser, to perform procedures that once required extensive surgery and recovery time. Today’s plastic surgeons have available a variety of tools and techniques that make procedures more accessible and affordable.
Recovery times vary depending upon the procedure.
Dr. Schrader has 10 years experience, over 6 years in private practice in Princeton and performed hundreds of reconstructive surgeries and other cosmetic procedures.
Plastic surgery involves many choices. The first and most important is selecting a surgeon you can trust. Choosing a good facial plastic surgeon ensures that you have selected a physician who:
- Is trained and experienced in all facial plastic surgery procedures
- Operates only in accredited medical facilities
- Adheres to a strict code of ethics
- Is board certified by The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS)

I waited an extended period of time before writing this "testimonial" on behalf of Dr. Nicole Schrader. Three years ago Dr. Schrader performed facial plastic surgery to correct a misalignment of my upper lip which resulted from an accident that had occurred a full year earlier. For a full year following the accident I was self-conscious about the condition of my upper lip - first because of the stitches done in the ER, next because of the discoloration and swelling of my upper lip, and then because my lip was no longer symmetrical on the left and right. Dr. Schrader was involved in my recovery beginning a week after the accident. She counseled me to be patience so we could see how my lip would heal from the ER treatment. My reconstructive surgery was not scheduled until 13 months after the date of the accident. Of course there was yet another period of post-surgical healing during which I had to continue to have patience. The result was and **is** wonderful. My lip healed long ago and there is little evidence of the laceration caused during the accident. My lip is once again symmetrical. And I am no longer self-conscious that my face was disfigured by the accident. I am grateful to Dr. Schrader for not only her technical skills in reconstructing my upper lip, but also for her warmth and confidence when working with me.
