Plastic and reconstructive surgery covers a wide spectrum of organ systems and body parts. Most people think of plastic surgery as being synonymous with cosmetic surgery.
We do specialize in rhinoplasty (nose surgery), eye surgery, facelifts and breast reconstruction as well as eyelid surgery, body contouring, liposuctioning, laser resurfacing and tattoo removal.
Plastic surgeons also do hand surgery which includes the repair of tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and bones of the hand and wrist. We are leaders in the new field of microsurgery.
Lasers are used by some plastic surgeons in the treatment of birthmarks, tattoos, keloids and surgery after trauma (Road traffic accidents etc.). We are engaged in surgery of the jawbone and facial skeleton.
Common procedures that are done in this area include reduction of prominent ears, nose and recessed of protruding chins. Surgical treatment of head, neck and skin cancer with its potentially devastating cosmetic consequences is an area of special expertise for the plastic surgeon.
Now with new computer imaging techniques the patient can see before the operation how they will look after the surgery.
