About Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgery , as the name suggests, is conducted to reconstruct a body part to correct its shape. This is done by repairing the damaged tissues of that area. The tissues may be damaged owing to different reasons including accidental injuries, illness or birth defect.
Reconstructive surgery has been divided into several categories including Breast Reconstruction, Facial Reconstruction, Foot and Hand Reconstruction, Lip and Palate Repair, Scar Revision and Tissue Expansion.
