What are Reconstructive Surgery and Scar Revision?
Reconstructive surgery and scar revision can help restore functionality and appearance to areas of the skin that have been affected by:
- Skin cancer treatments
- Other skin trauma
- Old scarring
Depending on the size and depth of necessary correction, many dermatologists and other skin experts in Metairie and New Orleans recommend plastic surgery for more extensive cancer removal or reconstruction of cosmetically sensitive areas. Dr. Sands and our medical team tailor every procedure to the individual for the best results.
How are Reconstructive Surgery and Scar Revision Performed?
The techniques used to perform these procedures may differ depending on the area, size, and condition. Dr. Sands uses multiple methods, including:
- Tissue expansion
- Skin grafts
- Local flaps
- Free tissue transfer
- And more!
The functionality and appearance of your skin after reconstructive surgery and scar revision depends on the level of expertise of the surgeon and on choosing the best technique for your procedure. Trust your skin to Dr. Sands at Metairie Plastic Surgeons.
What Can I Expect After Surgery?
The amount of healing time after your procedure depends on the extent of your surgery and the method of surgery used. Dr. Sands and our medical team will let you know what you can expect, how you can prepare, and how much time you should take off from work and normal activities during your consultation. We will also monitor your healing and results through follow-up appointments to ensure that you have achieved optimal results.
After the initial healing process, patients experience restored appearance and functionality of treated areas. Maintaining a good skin care regimen and protecting your skin from excessive sun exposure can help maintain your healthy skin.
