First established as the National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction, myFace operates as a nonprofit organization associated with the physicians at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, which operates the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. The institute was founded with the assistance of myFace in 1955 and stands at the forefront of research in this critical area of the medical field. Furthermore, myFace offers its patients’ families help through The Newman Family Support Center. The center maintains an interdisciplinary team that includes professionals ranging from nutritionists and speech pathologists to psychologists and geneticists. It provides assistance to the entire family, as well as housing and travel help for families visiting the institute from out of town.
