The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore one or both breasts to a normal form following either lumpectomy or mastectomy therapy for breast cancer or genetic susceptibility. There are a variety of techniques available including implant placement or use of the patient’s own tissue to accomplish this goal.
Disproportionately large breasts can cause pain and discomfort, in addition to other physical and emotional distress. A breast reduction surgery removes the excess tissue to develop a breast size that is aligned with the body.
Skin Cancer Excision & Reconstruction
Skin cancers often require surgical resection and then restoration of normal form and function via reconstructive techniques. A board certified plastic surgeon is your best option for reconstruction of these often cosmetically sensitive areas.
Skin & Soft Tissue Lesions
Cysts, lipomas, and other noncancerous lesions can often distort appearance or disturb function. These frequently can be removed via reconstructive techniques that preserve form and restore function.
Mohs Defect Reconstruction
Mohs surgery is frequently performed by dermatologists to remove skin cancers in cosmetically sensitive areas. A board-certified plastic surgeon is your best option for repairing these surgical defects in a way that preserves form and restores function.
Frequently, previous repairs can disturb both form and function. Often the results can be improved upon with a combination of surgery and other modalities.
In the case of a serious fracture, surgery may be required to repair the area. An open surgery is when an incision is made to correctly reposition the bones. For a complex break, a reconstructive procedure may be necessary.
This is the restoration of soft tissue coverage in areas of raw tissue. This may require either movement of nearby tissue – flap surgery – or skin grafting.
Minor Burn Reconstruction
Reconstruction of small burns may involve contracture releases and skin grafting to restore form and function.
Head & Neck Reconstruction
In the wake of a severe trauma or the removal of tumors, reconstruction restores the critical structures in the head and neck for better mobility and appearance.
Lower Extremity Reconstruction
Following an accident or trauma, lower extremity reconstruction can be performed to restore limb function, cover vital structures, and maintain appearance.
