Plastic Reconstructive Surgery

We understand that a cancer diagnosis is very difficult to accept. Over that, treating your cancer may result in scars or disfigurement which can also be troubling. Preserving a positive self-image during or after cancer treatment is an major concern of all cancer survivors. Our plastic surgeons understand your concerns and will guide you through treatment and explain the resulting effect on your health and appearance.

At Onkaulogy Kombine, we have a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Centre that provides high-level, comprehensive care for our patients of all ages.

Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, cancer, infection or tumors. For cancer patients, it is generally performed to approximate or revive the normal appearance.

Some surgical procedures used for plastic and reconstructive surgeries to treat cancer at Onkaulogy Kombine:

MicrosurgeryA complex procedure that involves sewing together tiny nerves, tendons, or blood vessels under a microscope. This is undertaken to allow a tissue to live in its new location. Microsurgery makes it possible to reattach limbs, create eye lids as well as free tissue transplants. Your surgeon can use tissues as thin as paper to correct deformities caused by cancer or tumors.

DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastic Perforators) FlapA state-of-the-art procedure that uses excess tissue from a patient’s abdomen to sculpt a new, natural breast. This complex, yet superior procedure, is made possible through microsurgery.

Free Flap A free flap is a piece of tissue that is completely removed from its donor site along with an artery and a vein and will be connected to an artery and a vein at the recipient site.

Local FlapLocal flap surgery is performed if the affected area or defect is large. The defect is removed, followed by tissue rearrangement. The flap is used to create minimal scarring and to rearrange the tension of the closure. The area will then gradually return to its natural shape as the flap takes shape and heals.

Pedicle FlapA pedicle flap is tissue that is moved on a vascular pedicle (an artery and a vein that will be connected to an artery and a vein at the recipient site) and is sutured into place at the recipient site.

It differs from free flaps as the pedicle (blood supply) to the flap is not cut.
