Treatments involved in Microsurgical Facial Reconstruction

Facial tumor removal

Microsurgical facial reconstruction for facial tumors involves a variety of treatments depending on the type, size, and location of the tumor. Common treatments include laser surgery, excision and repair, or tissue transfer.

Laser surgery is used to remove the tumor while preserving surrounding tissue.

Excision and repair involves surgically removing the tumor and reconstructing the area with healthy tissue.

Tissue transfer involves taking tissue from one part of the body and transplanting it to the affected area. This procedure can be used to reconstruct the face when there is a large area of damage.

How is facial tumor removal done?

In microsurgical facial reconstruction, facial tumor removal is performed by a plastic surgeon with specialized training in microsurgery like Dr. Sudhakar Prasad .

The procedure begins with Dr. Sudhakar Prasad making an incision around the tumor to remove it. Special instruments are then used to excise the tumor and preserve surrounding tissue.

The doctor then reconstructs the area with healthy tissue, either from the patient’s body or a donated tissue graft.

Finally, the incision is closed with sutures and the patient is monitored for any complications that may arise during recovery.

Microvascular free tissue transfer

Microvascular free tissue transfer is a surgical procedure used in microsurgical facial reconstruction. It involves using tissue from one part of the body and transferring it to an affected area.

This procedure is usually used to reconstruct facial areas that have been severely damaged due to cancer or trauma. It is a complex procedure that requires a high level of skill and precision, as the tissue must be carefully cut and reconnected with the correct blood vessels. The procedure often requires multiple surgeries and a long recovery period.

How is microvascular free tissue transfer removal done?

First, the tissue that Dr. Sudhakar Prasad intends to use is harvested from the donor site, usually a healthy area of the body. The surgeon then carefully dissects the tissue and prepares it for transfer.

Next, Dr. Sudhakar reconstructs the affected area with the donor tissue. This is done by reattaching the tissue to the blood vessels in the affected area, allowing blood to flow through the tissue.

The incision is then closed and the patient is monitored closely during the recovery period.

How is the recovery after Microsurgical Facial Reconstruction?

Recovery after microsurgical facial reconstruction can take several weeks or even months. During this time, the patient should take extra care to protect the affected area from infection.

Dr. Sudhakar Prasad will likely prescribe antibiotics, pain medication, and a special dressing to cover the wound. The patient will also be cautioned against strenuous activity to avoid further damage to the tissues.

Once the recovery period is over, the patient should be able to enjoy the surgery results and return to normal activities.
