Breast cancer and skin cancer reconstruction
Early consultation with a reconstructive plastic surgeon is critical after a breast cancer diagnosis. Early decisions can play a significant part in positive patient outcomes. Reconstruction after mastectomy, lumpectomy or balancing procedures for asymmetry of nonaffected breasts can be implemented. Skin cancer reconstruction for areas all over the body requires specialized techniques from skin grafting, local and regional flaps to biological regenerative therapies. Dr. Meyerson brings his expertise to promote healing and minimize scarring.
Wound Care and reconstruction
Certain factors can contribute to wounds healing improperly and becoming chronic wounds. Some disease processes that limit the bodies ability to heal include diabetes, radiation therapy, peripheral vascular disease and using tobacco and nicotine. Complex chronic wounds that require skin grafts or tissue transfer are hard to heal and require the trained hands and eyes of a plastic surgeon. Meyerson brings a team approach to the already well established Wound Clinic to ensure all areas of the healing process are addressed for the patient from local wound care to surgical reconstruction.
Plastic surgery and future cosmetic procedures
Plastic Surgery as a field is on a continuum. Some cases can be insurance covered such as breast reductions and panniculectomies (removal of excessive abdominal tissue) while other procedures are considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance. Breast and body contouring after weight loss, liposuction, gynecomastia correction, breast lifts, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation (e.g. Botox and Fillers) are examples of cosmetic cases.
