List of Reconstructive Surgeries

Breast Reconstruction

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION: Breast reconstruction is a surgical technique that is commonly performed after a female undergoes partial or complete removal of the breast after being diagnosed with breast cancer with no signs of disease remaining. The procedure involves using autologous tissue or prosthetic material to construction a breast that looks natural. At times breast reconstruction involves reformation of nipple and areola. The procedure offers array of psychological and aesthetic benefits to the patients.

Hand Surgery

There are different reasons why a patient needs hands surgery. It could be due to industrial accidents or injuries caused by industrial accidents, fireworks, road accidents, blowers, saws, and other similar devices. Hand reconstruction surgery might be required after crush injuries, hand and finger detachment, or resultant nerve damage. The reconstruction of hand may involve reattachment of limbs, repair of nerves and tendon, and resetting of fractures.

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery

Cleft lip and cleft palate are one of the most common birth defects. Cleft lip repair surgery is usually done when the child is 6 to 12 weeks old. Cleft palate repair is at times done when the child's age is between 9 months to 1 year old. This allows the palate to change as the baby continues to grow. The procedure is performed to correct physical deformities caused by cleft lip or cleft palate. Correction of these conditions becomes imperative when they cause problems with speech, feeding, or nursing.

Skin Cancer Removal

Skin cancer removal is the surgery for removal of cancerous growths from the skin. Your cosmetic surgery will utilize special techniques to preserve your health and appearance with removal of skin lesions. Cosmetic surgeon makes every effort to treat skin cancer without bringing dramatic change in your appearance.

Tissue Expansion

Tissue expansion is the technique used by cosmetic surgeons to let the body grow additional skin, tissues, and bone. The procedure creates skin that matches the texture, color, and thickness of surrounding tissue along with minimizing the risk of injection and scarring. Tissue expansion surgery is commonly used for breast reconstruction following breast removal and also can help with skin damage caused by accidents, surgery, and other factors.

Scar Revision

Scar revision surgery is the procedure that is meant to minimize the appearance of the scar so that it looks consistent with the surrounding skin and texture. The procedure aims to restore function and correct skin changes caused by previous surgery, wound, or injury. Depending upon the extent of the surgery, the procedure may employ local or general anesthesia. At times it is combined with dermabrasion, skin grafting, and tissue expansion

Birth Marks

Black or hyperpigmented large moles or nevus are present any where on the body. These may be hairy when they are termed as hairy nevus. There can be red or pigmentary lesions that are either raised or flush with the skin surface. These are abnormal lesions arising from blood vessels and are called haemangiomas.

The surgery is mainly done for cosmetic purpose or if the lesion is growing and causing some problem.

Burns

Acute or fresh burns from direct flames, hot liquids, acids, electricity flash etc. require urgent care. In some instances skin cover is required within a few days to prevent life threatening complications. During the course of healing after burnt skin or slough has been removed urgent skin cover can prevent bad contractures and ugly scar formations. Some patients report very late with extensive scars and functional deformities. All such cases require one or several plastic surgery procedures to correct the defects.

Trauma Injuries

HAND INJURIES: Simple household cuts to hand and fingers. Finger tip injuries, injuries to the tendons, nerves, blood vessels and skin loss. Industrial crushing injuries associated with fractures of the bones, severe skin damage or a totally mangled hand require plastic surgery intervention.

FACE INJURIES: All the wounds or cuts involving the forehead, eye brows, eyelids, cheek region, nose, ears, lips etc. are best treated by plastic surgery. All fractures involving the facial bones like forehead, orbits, nose, zygoma (cheekbones), upper jaw and the lower jaw or the mandible are treated by special techniques of plastic surgery i.e. maxillo-facial surgery.

LEG INJURIES: Injury to the upper or the lower limbs especially when associated with loss of skin and soft tissue coverings with or without bony fractures require attention of plastic surgeons.
