In brief: Many thing
The answer to your question depends on what sort of facial reconstruction you're speaking of.
The goal of reconstructive surgery is to restore the normal form and function of the face and facial structures. This can range from removal of a small cancer with reconstruction of a small defect to a face transplant. In general though successful reconstruction can be a transformative experience for patient.
