What Are the Different Types of Procedures Used For Reconstructive Plastic Surgery?
Our team at Yashoda Hospital consists of several well-acclaimed plastic surgeons who perform reconstructive plastic surgery to enhance the general appearance. To restore functionality and to correct the appearance of deformity, we use several procedures including:
- Free Flap Reconstruction for Head and Neck: The doctors perform this method for facial reconstruction after the treatment for head and neck cancer. The surgery gives good results with rapid recovery.
- Reconstructive Microsurgery: The plastic surgeons use an advanced operating microscope to move tissues from one part of the body to another distant part for reconstruction. Our plastic surgeons use precise microsurgical skills to reconstruct defects which result from amputated body parts, several malignant issues, and severed nerves or blood vessels to optimize functional outcome.
- Tissue Expansion: We use the latest advanced treatment for reconstructive surgery. This technique allows the normal skin to expand and cure congenital and post-trauma defects of the body.
- Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction: This is a significant procedure which is used for advanced breast cancer treatment. Women who have undergone a mastectomy or required removal of large breasts have been completely satisfied with this procedure because of its best outcomes.
- Skin Grafting: In this technique, damaged skin is replaced with healthy skin. To cover the large wounds or replace damaged skin by grafting, a section of skin is removed from one part of the body to another. The skin heals on its own from the place where the skin is taken.
- Tangential Excision: We use the latest and advanced treatment to cure and remove any scar which is caused by burns. The technique is a superior method for burn cosmetic results.
- Flap Surgery: Our doctors perform the latest techniques in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Under the flap surgery, the tissue is transferred from a donor site to a recipient site with an intact blood supply. There is a difference between the graft surgeries, which does not rely on intact blood supply.
- Meek Grafting: This procedure is used to treat the burn cases. Our doctors use a minuscule portion of a skin graft for large burn areas. The major advantage of meek grafting are:
- Fewer infections
- Faster healing process
- High cosmetic results
- Requires very small donor sites
- Grafts very easy to manipulate
- Offer fast and uniform epithelialization
- Large expansion ratios
- Excellent graft take
How to Prepare for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery
The surgery is determined by the doctors based on:
- Your medical health, age, and medical history
- The severity of the deformity
- Your tolerance of specific medications, therapies or procedures
- Location of the deformity

Any type of surgery includes some risk. Different patients respond to each surgery differently. Some of the complications and risk that may occur are:
