|DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction
DIEP is an advanced technique in breast reconstruction, which uses the patient's own body tissue to reconstruct the breast after a mastectomy.
Scar revision techniques can often improve the appearance of a scar, making it less obvious. A scar revision may help hide keloids, hypertrophic scars and burns.
|Free TRAM Breast Reconstruction
The free TRAM technique allows your surgeon to reconstruct the breast with body tissues, not a prosthetic breast implant.
|Skin Cancer Removal
Skin cancer is diagnosed by removing all or part of the growth and examining its cells under a microscope.
|TRAM Flap Breast Reconstruction
TRAM Flap breast reconstruction is named after the Transverse Rectus Abdominus Myocutaneous Flap.
Tissue expansion enables the body to create extra skin for reconstructing almost any part of the body.
|Oncoplastic Breast Reduction
If you have undergone lumpectomy to remove a tumor, you may be a candidate for oncoplastic breast reduction.
If you have suffered some sort of trauma to the skin, you may need to see a plastic or reconstructive surgeon for wound care.
