The Plastic surgery department deals with restoration, reconstruction and alteration of facial and body parts. Reconstructive surgeries include congenital or acquired deformities of the face, neck, and jaws such as Cleft Lip and Palate, burn reconstructive surgeries and replantation surgeries of fingers and other limbs. Cosmetic procedures include a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures to enhance facial features and other body parts such as nose, lips, eyebrows and breasts of both men and women.
A skilled surgeon, Dr. Dekid is adept at all spheres of plastic and reconstructive surgery, especially surgeries and procedures for face and body contouring. These include all procedures to enhance, face, body parts, such as breasts and buttocks, rhinoplasty, hair transplant, tummy tuck and liposuction.
The sub-branch of plastic surgery deals withsurgeries of the facial skeleton. Accidental and Congenital deformities of facial bones, jaw, lip, nose, eyelids, and the eye socket can be corrected by single or multiple surgeries.
Anatomical defects caused due to cancers of head and neckcan be treated by reconstructing part of the bone or tissue by using tissues from other area of the body such as thigh, abdomen and forearm.
Reconstructive hand surgery is performed to rebalance the hand and fingers to allow the hand to function normally. Accidental cases involving chopped figures or hands and congenital defects of deformed fingers can be treated by plastic surgeons.
Brachial plexus is a network of nerves that come from the spinal cord in the neck and travel down the arm. These nerves control the muscles of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. Neurolysis (temporary induced degeneration of targeted nerve cells), nerve repair, nerve transfer, free muscle transfer are some of the main surgical procedures for reconstruction of brachial plexus injuries.
Procedures of genital area for both men and women are commonly performed by plastic surgeons. Some of the problems of the genitourinary region include:
Complete absence of vagina or ill-constructed vagina can be corrected using plastic surgery techniques. Contouring procedures for labia, hymenoplasty and vagina tightening procedures are also performed by a plastic surgeon.
Recto vaginal fistulas may be formed during normal deliveries, when perineum is enlarged for the normal delivery or due to other surgeries of the vagina, anus and the perineum. Thesefistulas may lead to injury to the anal sphincter (the rings of the muscle that help to hold stool), which may cause complications of fecal incontinence. This condition can be rectified by single or multiple plastic surgeries.
Post burn scarring and contracture formation can be treated by plastic surgeries, where the wound is released to cover with a skin graft or a skin flap. A plastic surgeon is adept at treating post burn patients, as the plastic surgeon is able to assess the depth of the burn, the percentage of body area affected, and the cause of the burn.
Complicated diabetic foot ulcers that require removal of gangrenous openings or removal of the part of the foot can undergo plastic surgeries, including amputation. The plastic surgeon can either scrape off the required affected part of the foot or amputate the foot depending on the severity of the ulcer.
Crush injuries or traumatic amputations, require reconstruction of bone as well as soft tissues. The soft tissue coverage is reconstructed using skin grafts or skin flaps to cover, depending on the severity of the wound.In cases where tendons or vessels are exposed, tendon transfers are considered for optimal functional outcome of the lower extremity. Nerve grafts are also sometimes essential when sensation in the particular region is lost. Handling of nerves needs delicate tissue handling and magnification, which can be best performed by a plastic surgeon. Lower limb reconstruction may require single or multiple surgeries followed by specific post operative care for optimal functional outcomes.
Replantation is a surgical procedure that involves the reattachment of cut/pulled out fingers, thumb, hand or arm. The plastic surgery involves fixing of bone, muscles, tendons, nerves and blood vessels using suturing techniques. A plastic surgeon is a trained reconstructive surgeon adept at reconstructing cut body parts.
Lymphedema is a disorder where the lymphatic system fails to clear the lymph (fluid with proteins, fat and waste products) leaking out of the vascular system. This disorder may occur due to congenital defect, trauma accidents, or cancer. Lymphedema leads to swelling of the feet and hands, followed by wounds and cracks in the limb in later stages. Last stage of the disease is called elephantiasis where the limb becomes large and heavy laden with fissures discharging a clear fluid called lymph. Lymphedema may require multiple surgeries like liposuction, de-bulking surgery, and lympho modulating surgery. Plastic surgeries are trained to assess the severity of the disease and suggest the type of surgery.
Botox is an injectable drug that is very precise and effective in relaxing muscles of the face and other body parts to achieve the desired appearance. Botox is not only used for purely aesthetic reasons but also in correction of functional asymmetries of the face (like mild muscular weakness or residual asymmetry after surgery). Botox can help improve or correct many facial features such as:
|• Wrinkle Smoothening||• Jawline Shaping|
|• Smoothening the skin of forehead,mid-face, chin and neck||• Shaping of Tip of the Nose|
|• Nature of the Smile, including Gummy Smiles||• Eyebrow Shaping|
|• Shoulder and Calve Slendering||
Injectable filler is soft tissue filler injected into the skin to give fullness to the area. Fillers can be helpful post facelift to correct/improve residual areas of volume loss in the midface and preorbital region. Also used before and after rhinoplasty to demonstrate the change patients will undergo or correct any minor issues. Fillers can also be used to change/correct the shape of the face by either filling hollow temples or restoring loss chin volume.
Breast Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to make the breasts bigger and fuller by either using silicone implants and or the patient’s own fat. Silicone implants are soft silicone gel implants of either round or anatomical shape that can be inserted into the breast. The body fat of the patient can also be used as fat for breast augmentation.Liposuction is first used to transfer the fat from the stomach, inner thighs or outer thighs and then transferred to the breasts of the patient. Breast Reduction is a procedure to remove excess breast fat to make the breasts look smaller and in proportion to the body. Liposuction is used to suck out excess fat in the breasts, to make the breasts look smaller. This procedure is most suited for patients with overly large breasts which may cause pain in the neck/back/shoulder or discomfort in carrying out everyday physical activities.
Breast Lift surgery is performed on patients with sagging breasts due to major weight loss or due to breastfeeding post pregnancy.Breast Lift raises the breast by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape the breast. Breast lift can tremendously improve the shape and lift of the breast, changing the overall figure of the person. Various types of breast lift surgeries can be performed on breasts depending on the extent of sagging of the breasts.
Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer is a surgical procedure where fat is transferred from one area of the body to another part of the body. Fat grafting can be done to enhance buttocks, breasts or skinny legs. Fat grafting can also be done to enhance the areas of the face such as the chin, cheek or lips. Removal of fat is done using a procedure of liposuction from areas of excess fat like the buttocks, thighs or the stomach and then injected into areas where fat transfer is needed.
Rhinoplasty or nose job is a surgical procedure to either enhance the appearance of the nose or to restore the function (nasal trauma or breathing function) of the nose. Nose injuries due to trauma, birth defects, or cancer can lead to decreased function of the nose, making breathing difficult or impossible. Rhinoplasty can help reverse these deformities of the nose.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure to permanently remove fat from specific areas ofthe body to achieve desired contours. Liposuction can be performed on obese individuals or average weight persons with stubborn fat areas. Fat removal can be done on areas such as stomach, thighs, back, arms and a double chin. Liposuction does not usually involve any blood loss and is an effective permanent solution for fat removal which does not respond to diet or exercise.
Facial aging leads facial skin laxity which in-turn can lead to drooping eye brows. Eyebrow lift is a procedure where temporary sutures are used to produce a ‘lift’ in the skin, stretching the loose skin under the eyebrow. Thread Lift is a non-invasive, fairly quick procedure done under local anesthesia to achieve a new shape of the eyebrow.
Hair Transplant/Hair Restoration is a grafting procedure where hair follicles from the area of hair abundance are extracted to be planted in the area of hair deficiency. Hair follicles can be extracted from various zones like the scalp, beard area, body hair and pubic hair. Hair transplant is a safe procedure, done in local anesthesia which can greatly improve the density of hair and also the look of the person.
