Split-thickness grafts: few skin layers are transplanted and Full-thickness grafts: Epidermis is transplanted. Using a very sophisticated cutting tool, skin is removed from buttock or thigh and is placed on scar tissue. This type of approach is majorly used for reconstruction of breast or nose.
This technique is a surgical procedure which uses microscope for binding the damaged blood vessels and nerves. It is usually carried out for bringing structural improvements in lips, nose, ear or toe which has gone dramatic changes due to injury.
An instrument ‘balloon expander’ filled with saline solution is inserted under the skin cells that allow tissues to grow large and stretch gradually. Grown extra skin is significantly used in reconstructive procedures for correcting damaged body parts. This is most primarily used for breast reconstruction.
Z – plasty:
It is the surgical procedure that enhances flexibility of scar tissues by positioning z-shaped incision that leads to the formation of two triangle-shaped flaps. These flaps are rotated and sewed to hold in place. It conceals scar tissues resulting in skin contracture.
