Special Issue Introduction

In this issue, we will explore the challenges of midface reconstruction and the advances that have improved the outcomes and feasibility of optimal reconstruction of advanced midface defects. Midface reconstruction presents challenges to the reconstructive team due to the complex anatomy, variable defects, medical and dental functional issues, and the microvascular challenges posed by these situations. The complex nature of the defects and patient-oriented factors have forced virtual planning to the forefront of these surgical procedures. We will explore the evolution of midface and the advances that have brought successful aesthetic and functional reconstruction to the forefront, particularly with upfront dental rehabilitation. The multidisciplinary teams and collaboration needed for optimal outcomes will be explored and outlined to assist the readership in understanding the steps necessary for reconstructing these complex defects.
