Other Craniofacial Conditions


Facial Palsy

Facial palsy is loss of function of facial muscles of expression due to injury or compression of the facial nerve.

It is best treated early (within 1 year), when nerve transfer procedures can be carried out using nerve grafts from your leg (Sural nerve). If there is a delay (more than 1-2 years), a major procedure like free functioning muscle transfer using muscle from your thigh (Gracilis) will be required for reconstruction of your smile and Gold weights are inserted into your eyelids to facilitate proper closure of your eyelids.

You might also need physiotherapy and Botox injections as supplementary procedures to correct the deformities.

Parry Romberg Disease

You might have contour deformities on your face if you have this condition. There is a loss of volume under your skin causing depressions on your face. Sometimes, the skin may also be thinned out.

Fat grafting is a wonderful option for this condition. Fat is borrowed from your tummy or thighs and injected into these areas to get a smooth surface. This is usually a day procedure.

Very comfortable to deal with. He clearly explains the condition and builds confidence. Also clarifies all your questions with patience. Highly recommended. Thank u sir.


Amazing doctor. Explained things thoroughly during treatment. Made my deep cut mark on cheek fully disappear, which I never thought would happen.


I was exceedingly comfortable during the surgery and Dr. Deraje is a wonderful surgeon. He also assisted me in getting a certificate promptly for my injury. My scars have healed perfectly too.


I met with an accident and surgery done for my finger tip. Vybhav did very well and I didn’t expect that my finger tip would survive. He has done very well and helpful person as well.
