What is Reconstructive Surgery?
In addition to reconstructive hand surgery, Mr. Salerno also performs reconstruction surgery on other parts of the body at REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in Melbourne. Common procedures that we offer include:
- Major head and neck reconstructions
- Lower limb reconstructions following open fractures
- Breast reconstruction following a mastectomy
- Major hand reconstructions, including the reattachment of amputated fingers under the right conditions
- Burns surgery
Having your individual condition evaluated is the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for reconstructive surgery.
How is Reconstructive Surgery Performed?
There are several ways to perform reconstructive surgery, and depending on the level of necessary correction as well as the area of the body being treated, a customized surgical plan will be created for you if it is determined that you are a good candidate for this procedure. Mr. Salerno and our medical team can also discuss how you can prepare for your procedure and what you can expect.
What is Recovery Like?
Recovery after reconstructive surgery is different for every patient, but some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort may be experienced as the treated areas heal. Mr. Salerno and our medical team can help you determine when you can safely return to work and normal activities. Any relevant post-surgical aftercare and instructions will also be shared with you to help reduce the risk of infection or complications.
Am I a Good Candidate for Reconstructive Surgery?
Men and women who have experienced injury or trauma to the body resulting in complications and who are seeking surgical correction may be good candidates for this procedure. Candidacy is decided on a case by case basis and is based on several factors such as your health, medical history, individual condition, and more. If surgery is deemed appropriate for you, the proper surgical technique and plan will be implemented for you to help restore functionality or appearance of your treated area.
