Reconstructive surgery replaces body parts or body functions and restores integrity to the body surface. Such techniques have existed for more than 1500 years and are improving on a daily basis.
Besides the more common procedures such as breast reconstruction, there many more applications:
- Facial defects, such as skin cancer, malformation (clefts) or trauma.
- Defects of various body parts due to tumours or trauma; there is normally no healing without plastic reconstruction or amputation of extremities.
- Bedsores and pressure ulcers, for instance on the back or in the sacral or sciatic region.
- Visible or retracted scars that can be improved or under-filled by fat grafting.
The best therapy for you will be individually chosen in a personal consultation in Cologne/ Bergisch Gladbach or Malaga with your plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Alexander T. Hamers.
