A very important part of the plastic surgery is the so called
RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY, which target is to use
the principios of the Plastic to reconstruct the shortcomings
produced by congenital illnesses, accidents, surgeries
After the surgeon oncologist has had to extirpate the breast for cancer, there
exists the possibility of reconstructing it, it has been demonstrated that this
surgery (mastectomy) is strongly mutilante for the woman, leaving emotional,
personal problems and of partner.
reconstruction can do in two forms:
When the tumor is on initial stage and the surgeon oncologist glides
to do the eradication of the
gland preserving the skin, in this case it will be possible to re-do
the breast by means of the
laying of a mammary implant.
inmediate : It is possible to reconstruct in late form when there
is no the safety of eliminating completly the
tumor, this one is realized between 12 and 48 months after the surgery
to be sure the tumor has
been eradicated completamente, this reconstruction can do with
stretching of the skin with an
expansor and later reconstruction with implant, or by means of the
transfer of textile of another
side of the organism as abdomen or back. Consult his surgeon for more

Facial breaks: treatment of the breaks of the face, orbits, cheekbones, nose,
maxillary or jaw.
Traumatic injuries: wounds or loss of facial tissues, facial breaks, nasal, maxillary
break, you orbit or
jaw. Injury of facial nerve.
Facial tumors: tumors and cancer of skin and soft tissues, salivary glands, mouth
or facial bones.
Congenital: Harelip, cracked palate, Absence of development of ears (microaunt),
Reconstruction of head and neck for shortcomings for surgery of cancer.
The hand is one of the most complex structures of our organism, by to the thin
of the structures and the narrow
anatomical relation of each one of his components
the fact is that the hand surgery is part of the reconstructive
surgery in the
formation of a plastic surgeon.
Correction of congenital bad formations of hand: absence in formation of fingers
fingers between if (sindactilia) or fingers of more (polidactilia).
Correction of traumatic injuries: breaks, injuries of sinews or nerves, amputations,
Correction of shortcomings for surgeries, burns or hand tumors.
Correction of degenerative illnesses of hand: Deformities for Arthritis, tenosinovitis,
correction of Syndrome of Tunnel Carpiano, etc.
The integral handling from the initial attention, handling of the sharp injuries,
healings, skin graftings up to the
correction of the aftermath, scars and deformities
that these produce, are an area of work for the Plastic Surgeon,
though the handling
of the burnt patient will have to be multi-diciplinario, since it includes aspects
Intensive Medicine, of infection, of Anesthesia, Psicólogia, Nutrition,
Leather tumors: cysts, nerves, spots, hemangiomas, lipomas, warts, queratosis, or leather cancer.
Tumors of head and neck: cysts, tumors of mouth, language, salivary glands or bones.
Harelip, microaunt (absence in development of ears). Malformation of the fingers,
as polidactilia or sidactilia (fingers
of more or close fingers or malformados), etc.
TRANSFERENCE OF TISSUES AND MICROSURGERY
Ulcers or chronic ulcers for varicose veins, diabetic foot or for pressure (you
injure in the back); scars deformantes,
or reimplant of an amputated member.
The transference of tissues to cover or to repair shortcomings in any part of
Skin grafting: it is the simplest form to cover a shortcoming, often used in burns, ulcers
flebiticas, surgical or traumatic shortcomings that do not expose bone or sinews.
Tatter: It is a fragment of textile that has own circulation, it can be of an adjacent
area to the shortcoming or of another anatomical area, is in use in shortcomings
that need more volume of textile with blood own circulation or expose bone or
