Reconstructive procedures aim to restore the body to a more natural-looking and functioning state. Reconstructive surgery helps patients of all ages and types – whether it’s a child with a birth defect, a young adult injured in an accident, someone with an illness that left them with severe scarring, or an older adult with a problem caused by aging.
Lat Flap Breast Reconstruction
Latissimus dorsi flap is a popular technique in breast reconstruction that uses tissue (skin, fat and muscle) from your upper back to reconstruct one or both breasts. If you’re considering breast reconstruction, we can guide you on your journey toward physical and emotional recovery.
TRAM Flap Breast Reconstruction
TRAM flap reconstruction is one of the many options available to women who need to rebuild and reshape their breasts following a mastectomy. This procedure is named after the transverse rectus abdominus myocutaneous muscle that is used, along with surrounding skin and fat, to perform this breast reconstruction technique.
Common Reconstruction Procedures
If you wear ear jewelry, the effect of weight, gravity and trauma can pull through tissue, resulting in a split earlobe. This defect is usually very visible and hard to cover with hair or clothing. Dr. Jaibaji provides a solution to these problems.
Affecting more than one million people in the U.S. every year, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. When caught early, skin cancer is treatable, but may leave your skin with unwanted scars. A skilled cosmetic surgeon can help maintain the integrity of your skin.
Scar revision is a group of cosmetic techniques that can be used to improve the appearance of your scar, regardless of its size, type or age. Though scars can never be completely removed, the appearance of scarring may be greatly diminished.
Tissue expansion is a highly useful reconstructive surgery technique that plastic surgeons perform for patients who lack sufficient tissue for their reconstructive needs. Dr. Jaibaji can perform tissue expansion during a variety of reconstructive procedures at our San Diego plastic surgery practice.
