Scar revision surgery will attempt to minimize a scar so that it is less conspicuous and blends in with the surrounding skin tone and texture.

Reconstructive microsurgery is a surgical discipline in which specialized operating microscopes and precision instrumentation are used to repair intricate structures such as blood vessels and nerves less than a few millimeters in diameter. This field has made a major impact to restore form and function to individuals impaired by trauma, cancer, and congenital anomalies.

Lower limb reconstruction is done with the aims of limb salvage and preserving function. Plastic surgeons work closely with general surgeons and orthopedic surgeons who are often the referring surgeons for conditions that may threaten limb loss. Common conditions that may lead to a referral for lower limb reconstruction are trauma – open fractures or degloving injuries involving the lower limb; cancer and infection – necrotizing fasciitis or diabetic infections of the foot and lower limb.

Finger injuries are common and range from minor cuts and scrapes to wounds with major damage to bone, tendons, and ligaments. If not treated properly, serious finger injuries can lead to permanent deformity and loss of function. 

Intricate in design and function, the hand is an amazing work of anatomic engineering. Form follows function in the hand; therefore, any injury to the underlying structures of the hand carries the potential for serious handicap.

Dramatic advances have been made in recent years in treating patients with congenital defects, degenerative disorders, and injuries of the hand, aiming to improve function and appearance. Hand surgery can treat diseases that cause pain and impair the strength, function, and flexibility of your wrist and fingers.

Surgically removing cancerous and other skin lesions using specialized techniques to preserve your health and your appearance.

The goal of panniculectomy surgery is to remove hanging skin and fat from the lower abdomen to create a smoother abdominal contour. A panniculectomy differs from a tummy tuck in that the abdominal muscles are typically not tightened during a panniculectomy. There are many reasons why an individual can develop excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen. The most common causes are age, hereditary, pregnancy, prior surgery, and massive weight loss.

Tissue expansion is a relatively straightforward procedure that enables the body to "grow" extra skin for use in reconstructing almost any part of the body.

Children can be born with pigmented moles called congenital nevi (or nevus, if singular). These represent a proliferation of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells of the skin. Giant nevi are those measuring 20cm or more in size at birth. The goal of giant nevi removal surgery is to remove the mole in its entirety or at least as much as is possible.
