Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

This surgical speciality covers both excisional oncological treatment (excluding visceral organs and the central nervous system) and reparative treatment for any part of the body.

The following types of surgery are performed in the unit:

–    Immediate functional and anatomical reconstruction of cover and/or exposure defects in noble structures (neurovascular, myotendinous, osteoarticular) at any anatomical location (head and neck, trunk, limbs, extremities and perineum), using latest-generation flaps, whether locoregional pediculated flaps of perforating vessels or plasties of perforating vessels with micro-vascular anastomoses.


–    Secondary or deferred reconstruction of face and neck integuments and crossovers, especially periorificial such as eye sockets, nasal and oral, whenever feasible with the patient’s own tissues, as well as skeletal osteosynthesis.

–    Immediate and/or deferred breast reconstruction (completely or partially disfigured), whether using autologous (the patient’s own) tissue, heterologous (implanting prosthetic material), or mixed. Indication is always subject to the judgement of the repairing plastic surgeon, using the minimum surgery possible.

–    Miscellanea: Degenerative pathology of the hand. Rescue of lower limbs from ulcerous pathologies or osteomyelitis. Micro-surgical restitution of nerve lesions such as peripheral facial paralysis. General treatment of wounds with complex evolution and after-effects of infectious pathology.

–    Reparative treatment, including conservative treatment for radiation dermatitis, and interventional treatment for radiation necrosis.
