Plastic surgeons perform a wide range of reconstructive procedures to restore body function and correct physical abnormalities. Below are some of the reconstructive surgery procedures performed at our Philadelphia practice.
Traditional breast reduction surgery removes excess tissue from a patient's breasts, which are usually large enough to cause significant discomfort. The procedure also reshapes the breast to improve appearance. Male breast reduction is performed to correct a condition of abnormal breast tissue on a man's chest, often diagnosed as gynecomastia. Both surgeries are can make a patient feel less self-conscious about body image.
Breast reconstruction involves multiple techniques intended to recreate the breast after mastectomy. In many cases, your plastic surgeon will cooperate with your other physicians to minimize trauma of the mastectomy and maintain a natural breast appearance.
Skin Cancer Surgery
The most common type of skin cancer surgery involves the removal of a tumor and immediate inspection with a microscope.
