Plastic and reconstructive surgery (contrary to aesthetic surgery) is performed for the purpose of improving abnormal structures of the face and body, caused by various factors (consequences of trauma, tumors, infection, developmental anomalies or hereditary defects). It is generally performed to improve function, but it also aims to achieve a more normal appearance.

PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY IN THE POLYCLINIC - CHOICE OF PROCEDURE
- Scar Revision – No matter how bad a scar appears, it can be usually improved. The final results of the treatment can be visible only after a year or even longer. Fortunately, there are many treatment options of improvement.
- Facial reconstruction after facial paresis – Correction of the consequences of facial nerve dysfunction caused by a postpartum defect, trauma, inflammation, tumor or other unknown cause. There are variations in presentation and treatment, and the needs of the patient should be adjusted to the complexity of the rehabilitation method.
- Eyelid ptosis reconstructions (this is a different operation from typical blepharoplasty!) – Drooping eyelids of congenital or acquired causes and other reconstructive procedures in the area of the eyelids and surrounding tissue.
- Removal of skin cancer and other skin and subcutaneous lesions
- Congenital anomalies – Hereditary defects in the head and neck area. Sometimes nasal deformity can be the subject of surgical correction, especially in patients with cleft lip and palate.
- Plastic and reconstructive hand surgery
Reconstructive surgery is highly individualized and may require several acts to achieve an optimal result. Ultimately, repairing appearance and function through reconstructive surgery can contribute to improving a patient’s psychological status and self-confidence.
