  • Aesthetic procedures at Friedrichshafen Clinic in Germany

    Reconstructive procedures surgically restore functions of the body that have been lost due to injury, the removal of tumours or deformities.

Reconstructive Surgery: Definition

Reconstructive surgery by definition involves the restoration of the body surface and contour after accident, burn or surgery of tumors. The resulting damage to or loss of body parts can massively restrict the person concerned in their professional and private lives as well as significantly affect their quality of life and satisfaction.

The aim of reconstructive surgery (definition: reconstructive surgery) is to restore or at least significantly improve the function and shape as well as the external appearance as completely as possible. Patients of all ages and practically every specialty are treated. To restore a variety of measures are necessary, depending on the size, location and nature of the defect; but also of comorbidities and age of the patient.

The technical possibilities range from a simple wound closure - stress-free, gentle and with very fine suture material for an optimal aesthetic result - to more complex interventions that require specialized skills such as skin grafting, defect coverings due to tissue displacement or transplantation, nerve grafting or tendon remodeling , For more complex defects, there are also various flap plasties available, in which lobes from skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue - or in larger defects involving fascia, muscle and bone - are transplanted.

An important basis of reconstructive surgery is microsurgery, which allows the connection of the finest vessels and nerves under the surgical microscope. Thus, tissue with a defined blood supply can be transferred from a healthy body site to the defect.

Reconstructive Surgery: Definition and Range of Service

In the opinion of PD Dr. Ruggaber it is very important to know the various procedures and evaluate their use. Most of the reconstructive procedures are performed by the team themselves with great experience, otherwise they can refer highly experienced procedures or illnesses to experienced colleagues in the field.

Cour Departmenr of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offers the full range of services, from head to toe, and for all ages:

  • defect coverage
  • Removal of skin cancer
  • Flap sculptures on the face
  • Wound treatment in bedsores (bedsores)
  • Self-grease treatment and negative pressure treatment for complex wounds
  • Free tissue transplantation
  • Local tissue displacement
  • burns

Burns and scalds are among the most common and dangerous everyday injuries. Our Center of Reconstructive Surgery team specializes in the acute and modern care and aftercare of burns and their sequelae. Depending on the extent and severity, we treat them on an outpatient or inpatient basis. We also treat any late effects of burns or burns.

  • Contour restoration with flap sculptures
  • Contractural solution for burn scars on joints
  • Surgical needling for the treatment of burn scars
  • Scar treatment with stem cell transplants from autologous fat
  • Reconstructive surgery: breast

After breast cancer surgery, when the breast is partially or completely removed, women often desire a restored body image and an alternative to an uncomfortable and heavy breast prosthesis. Here are two possibilities for the reconstruction available: an implant or the structure of the breast with own tissue. Both are tissue-sparing interventions without large skin incisions. Due to the close cooperation with the gynecological clinic, the affected patients can be offered reconstructive possibilities right from the start, individually depending on the initial findings with implants, local flap plasties or only with own tissue using modern microsurgical surgical methods.

Reconstructive surgery body and face

Tumors on the skin often involve highly visible areas of the skin that require surgical removal. Here it may be important for those persons to carry out reconstructive measures. In this way, self-esteem for public participation can be restored.

Good evening doctor,

Hello. Im interested in the cost of rhinoplasty in your clinic. How much does it cost?

SS 2018-09-23 / 14:39

I have an displaced avulsion fracture of the distal phalange of right hand third (ring) finger. The fracure was not fund until five weeks after the injury and the finger is now in a splint. I have seen Xrays that indicate no joining of the fractured bone to the finger ( eight weeks post injury) and have my doubts it will ever join. I have been told that fusion is the only option for surgery. But I was told a similar story about my neck thirteen years ago and I had an artificial disc fitted in a clinic in Munich. It is a total success but would not have been a treatment available in the UK. I have therefore good faith in German medical practice and would like to know my options regarding my finger please.
