Reconstructive Surgery

Best Cosmetic Surgeons in India

Reconstructive surgery involves surgical management of the body structures affected functionally or aesthetically by developmental abnormalities, congenital defects, injuries, burns, infection, or tumours. It is performed to restore the function and the appearance of the damaged tissue.

Several reconstructive techniques are used to repair the damage, mostly by transferring a healthy tissue from one part of the body to another. Depending on the area and severity of tissue damage, multiple surgeries may be required to improve the function and aesthetics of the tissue
