Reconstructive Surgery at Carlotti Cosmetic Center

Posted on January 31st, 2013 by Dr. Albert Carlotti

Reconstructive Surgery is a type of plastic surgery that is performed to correct injuries or impairments caused by traumatic injuries, burns, birth defects, developmental abnormalities, infection and disease, and more.

Whether you were involved in an accident that has left you with burns, have suffered from traumatic injury or have a child born with a birth defect, reconstructive surgery by Dr. Albert Carlotti and his wife Dr. Michelle Cabret-Carlotti may be the answer. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there are more that 1 million reconstructive surgeries performed each year and, for those in need, it can make all the difference in the world. Reconstructive surgery can encompass anything from breast reduction to correcting a birth defect.

The types of reconstructive surgery include:

  • Breast Reconstruction

Mastectomies leave both emotional and physical scars and breast reconstruction can help. There are a variety of cosmetic surgery techniques that can be employed to restore the breast as closely as possible to its original condition prior to the mastectomy, replicating its shape, size and appearance.

  • Breast Reduction

Breast reductions, also known as mammoplasties, are the most common type of reconstructive surgery. Although the surgery is typically performed for women, there is a growing number or men who are having breast reduction surgery. For individuals that suffer from abnormally large breasts, the doctor will remove excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast, to achieve a size proportional to the rest of body. This reconstructive surgery alleviates the pain of back problems, and other complications associated with abnormally large breasts.

  • Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Due to trauma, surgery, birth defect or illness, facial reconstruction may be necessary. With reconstructive surgery, the doctor will be able to increase both functionality and appearance for the patient. Procedures include cleft lip and palate repair, facial trauma reconstruction (such as rhinoplasty, otosplasty, and scar treatment) and much more.

  • Body Reconstructive Surgery

There is a wide range of procedures that can be contained under the umbrella of body reconstructive surgery. This type of plastic surgery can include anything from correcting developmental abnormalities and congenital defects (like labiaplasty or the removal of extra fingers or toes), and damage caused by trauma and/or disease. For those who have had their body affected by maladies, cancer, or burns, reconstructive surgery helps to improve the function and cosmetic appearance for the sufferer.
