Plastic surgery is a medical procedure with the purpose of alteration or restoring the form of the body. Though cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the most well known kind of plastic surgery, plastic surgery itself is not necessarily considered cosmetic; and includes many types of reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns.
Today, millions of people visit dermatologist with skin related problems such as rough skin texture, wrinkles and fine lines, flaky or dry skin, sun damaged skin, acne scars etc. Thus they need a cosmetic clinic that would provide start to end solution to their problems with the best possible treatment. The clinic offers all types of skin treatments including Chemical peels which is practiced on a regular basis. The treatment falls in the category of advanced clinical skin rejuvenation treatments helping in reversing the damaged skin due to several factors. These factors include aging, sun exposure and acne.
This treatment is carried out by the experienced staff of the clinic and not by the assistants. Thus, with skilled and experienced hands, the patients are bound to get the best treatment. Today, many people look up to dermatologists for several cosmetic treatments so as to get a new refined look. This is because of the faith they have in the skills and the experience of the dermatologists.
Procedures and Services offered:
Skin grafting small area:
Skin grafting is a type of graft surgery involving the transplantation of skin. The transplanted tissue is called a skin graft.
Skin grafting is often used to treat:
- Extensive wounding or trauma
- Areas of extensive skin loss due to infection such as necrotizing fasciitis or purpura fulminans
- Specific surgeries that may require skin grafts for healing to occur – most commonly removal of skin cancers
Skin grafts are often employed after serious injuries when some of the body’s skin is damaged. Surgical removal (excision or debridement) of the damaged skin is followed by skin grafting. The grafting serves two purposes: reduce the course of treatment needed (and time in the hospital), and improve the function and appearance of the area of the body which receives the skin graft.
There are two types of skin grafts, the more common type is where a thin layer is removed from a healthy part of the body (the donor section) like peeling a potato, or a full thickness skin graft, which involves pitching and cutting skin away from the donor section. A full thickness skin graft is more risky, in terms of the body accepting the skin, yet it leaves only a scar line on the donor section, similar to a Cesarean section scar. For full thickness skin grafts, the donor section will often heal much more quickly than the injury and is less painful than a partial thickness skin graft.
Reduction of facial fracture of Nose:
Nasal bone fractures are among the most common facial bone fractures. According to several retrospective studies, nasal bone fractures comprise up to 50% of all facial fractures.
Diagnosis is done as per the list below:
- Most nasal fractures are diagnosed by history and physical examination.
- History usually includes a preexisting trauma, which may be followed by epistaxis. Typically, the epistaxis has resolved by the time the patient presents for intervention.
- Patients usually present with swelling over the nasal bridge and a difference in the appearance or shape of the nose.
- Physical examination findings include swelling over the nasal bridge, grossly apparent deviation of the nasal bones, and periorbital ecchymosis.
- Plain radiographs are not helpful in the diagnosis or management of nasal fractures in isolated nasal injury.
Nasal bone CT scan is helpful if the patient has associated facial fractures.
- Be sure to ask the patient how the external shape of the nose has changed since the fracture. This helps determine what corrective maneuvers should be taken to restore the patient’s appearance through reduction of the nasal fracture.
Skin flaps cross finger:
The cross-finger flap has been used successfully for decades. Traditionally, the flap is elevated in the plane lying superficial to the extensor tendon. This damages the delicate subcutaneous tissues, which are important for the lengthening capacity of the skin of the dorsum of the fingers during flexion and extension.
This modification prevents donor finger complications such as poor graft take, extensor tendon adhesion to the graft and reduced range of finger joint movement and contour deformities.
Cleft lip repair:
Cleft lip and cleft palate repair is surgery to fix birth defects of the upper lip and palate (roof of the mouth).
A cleft lip is a birth defect:
A cleft lip may be just a small notch in the lip. It may also be a complete split in the lip that goes all the way to the base of the nose.
A cleft palate can be on one or both sides of the roof of the mouth. It may go the full length of the palate.
Your child may have one or both of these conditions at birth.
Most times, cleft lip repair is done when the child is 6 to 12 weeks old.
For cleft lip surgery, your child will have general anesthesia (asleep and not feeling pain). The surgeon will trim the tissues and sew the lip together. The stitches will be very small so that the scar is as small as possible. Most of the stitches will absorb into the tissue as the scar heals, so they will not have to be removed later.
Cleft plastic repair severe degree:
Most times, cleft palate repair is done when the child is older, between 9 months and 1 year old. This allows the palate to change as the baby grows. Doing the repair when the child is this age will help prevent further speech problems as the child develops.
In cleft palate repair, your child will have general anesthesia (asleep and not feeling pain). Tissue from the roof of the mouth may be moved over to cover the soft palate. Sometimes a child will need more than one surgery to close the palate.
During these procedures, the surgeon may also need to repair the tip of your child’s nose. This surgery is called rhinoplasty.
Post Burn Management:
A burn is an injury caused by thermal, chemical, electrical or radiation energy. A scald is a burn caused by contact with a hot liquid or steam but the term ‘burn’ is often used to include scalds.
Most burns heal without any problems but complete healing in terms of cosmetic outcome is often dependent on appropriate care, especially within the first few days after the burn. Most simple burns can be managed in primary care but complex burns and all major burns warrant a specialist and skilled multidisciplinary approach for a successful clinical outcome.
Following procedures and services are offered in Burn Management:
- Assessment of Burn
- Management of Minor Burns
- Management of Major Burns
- Dealing with Chemical Burns
- Dealing with Electrical Burns
An arteriovenous fistula is an abnormal connection or passageway between an artery and a vein. It may be congenital, surgically created for hemodialysis treatments, or acquired due to pathologic process, such as trauma or erosion of an arterial aneurysm.
