Choice between reconstruction or prosthetic

I have left maxillary squamous cell cancer, operation scheduled Charing Cross to remove quite large tumor, sinus will go but not up nose. I am 46 and it has not spread so team have offered to reconstruct from bone in lower leg. I have seen a prosthetic which does not look too bad. Difference in operation timw, 6-7 hours or 12-13 hours. Transplant may not take and it will not be same, many people have prosthetic and get on with life, would love to hear from anyone who could give me advice or swing my decision thanks
