The field of Plastic surgery has its roots in the reconstruction of defects left from a variety of insults ranging from trauma to cancer. The core tenet of replace like with like is the mantra by which our reconstructive surgeons practice this art. By using the most up to date and advanced techniques available today our surgeons strive to perform procedures that not only successfully reconstruct the area of concern but also maximize cosmetic outcomes while minimizing the effect on surrounding tissues and donor areas.
Abdominal Wall Reconstruction
Abdominoplasty refers to removal of excess skin and tightening of abdominal muscles. Panniculectomy refers to the removal of pannus, which is an overgrowth of skin and adipose tissue that does not respond to traditional forms of weight loss
Implant Based Breast Reconstruction
Breast Reconstruction is commonly performed following mastectomy, in patients diagnosed with breast cancer. The majority of patients who undergo breast reconstruction following mastectomy do so through the use of breast implants. This technique for breast reconstruction has been the preferred procedure used for decades and has remained a reliable option for many.
Fat grafting is particularly effective for reversal of age associated volume loss of the face and for correction of irregularities that presents following breast reconstruction. Fat grafting technique involves liposuction of fat from an area of excess, processing of the fat, and injection of the fat into the volume depleted zone.
