What is Reconstructive Surgery?
At its most basic level, reconstructive surgery is designed to restore someone’s appearance or function to a previous level. For many people, this means creating new breasts after a mastectomy due to cancer or fixing a nose after surgery for a deviated septum. Of course, there are many other possibilities for reconstructive surgery.
When it comes to reconstructive surgery, the goal is to make your life simpler, happier, and above all, make you feel like yourself again. So how do we help you achieve this? We make sure the procedure is well planned and executed – giving you realistic expectations throughout the entire process of the following surgeries:
Dr. Streitmann, who are board-certified in two surgical specialties – plastic surgery and ear, nose & throat surgery, applies knowledge from both of his specialties to restore form and function while working in conjunction with specialized dermatologists to remove skin cancer and preserve the maximum amount of normal tissue for reconstruction.
Dr. Streitmann performs breast reconstruction at the time of mastectomy when possible, or after treatment has been completed, depending on the advice of the oncologist & general surgeon. He uses breast implants, living tissue, or a combination of the two to reconstruct the breast or perform revisions of previous breast reconstruction surgeries.
How The Process Works
When you first make an appointment with your plastic surgeon for reconstructive surgery, the first step will be to evaluate your current condition. From there, your doctor can establish a baseline to inform the basis of your surgery. The goal of reconstruction surgery is to restore your body’s normal function without altering your appearance. After your surgery, you can return to your normal daily activities according to the recovery schedule your doctor provides.
Who Benefits From Reconstruction Surgery?
This type of surgery is suitable for a variety of people, though it is most commonly offered to those who have experienced some kind of physical trauma. This can include accidents, medical conditions and other mishaps that can alter your physical appearance and your body’s ability to function. As opposed to cosmetic surgery, the primary goal is to restore normal bodily function, not to improve your appearance.
Reconstruction Surgery Recovery
The recovery process from your particular surgery will depend on the specific surgery you required. In most cases, you’ll be expected to rest for at least a few days before returning to work and other regular activities. In some cases, you may be able to return to work right away, depending on the amount of physical activity required by your profession, or you may need extended rest. Your doctor can advise you about the recovery process for your specific procedure.
