Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive surgery is performed to repair defects in the body caused by developmental abnormalities, congenital deformities, tumors, or infections. Reconstruction is generally performed to improve function, but may also be done to restore the normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery helps patients of all ages – child, younger adult, and older adult.

Reconstruction surgery involvestransfer ofbody’s healthy tissue with rich blood supply to the traumatized site. During the process the healthy tissue is excised along with its blood vessels and set into the recipient site to replace the damaged or injured tissue.

Dr. Matteo Vigo specializes in various reconstructive surgeries including:

Surgeries for skin cancers and melanoma: Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer affecting people across the globe. Cancer, also called malignant neoplasm, occurs when cells in the body divide uncontrollably.

Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, begins in skin cells called melanocytes. Melanocytes produce the pigment, melanin, which determines the color of skin, hair and eyes.

Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery: Cleft lip and cleft palate, referred to as orofacial clefts, are the most common birth defects that occur when your baby’s lip or palate do not form completely, leaving a physical gap or split in the lip or palate.

If you think you may be interested in having a reconstruction, you may talk to your surgeon about this before you have your surgery.
