NJ Modern Surgical Technology | New Jersey Plastic Surgeons
Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct abnormalities in the appearance or function anywhere on the body which have been caused by hereditary defects, developmental anomalies, trauma, or illness. Very commonly, reconstructive surgery is performed to correct deformities following previous plastic surgery done by an individual who is not adequately trained to do so. Generally, reconstructive surgery is performed to improve function and usability but it is also performed to normalize appearance. Here at Palisades Plastic Surgery we provide Breast and Nasal reconstruction as the two main examples of reconstructive surgery. Also, scars and other deformities resulting from accidents at work or in motor vehicle collisions can be treated at our facility.
With modern surgical technology, it is now possible to reconstruct breasts to return them to a natural-looking form following mastectomy or lumpectomy due to cancer. The reconstructive surgery can be performed immediately following the mastectomy or as long as several years after. The procedure begins with insertion of a tissue expander which is later replaced by a silicone breast implant or your natural breasts tissues to reconstruct the breast mound. Breast augmentation usually requires follow-up procedures in order to recreate and/or revise nipples, areolas, or scars. We perform the following NJ breast augmentation: Soft Tissue Expander with Breast Implant, Latissimus Dorsi Myocutaneous Flap, Rectus Abdominus Myocutaneous Flap, Nipple Reconstruction, and Revision Breast Augmentation.

New Jersey nasal reconstruction surgery is usually required after the removal of malignant skin or growth on the nose. If can also be performed after an accident or to correct nasal disorders such as a deviated septum. The surgery restores the nose to its original shape and texture and repairs the nasal passages to normal functionality. There are different reconstructive options depending on the type and location of the wound. These include linear closure, split-thickness or full-thickness graft, and one of several cutaneous flap alternatives. More commonly, we see patients in need of reconstructive nasal surgery resulting from a poorly performed cosmetic rhinoplasty. Sometimes excessive cartilage is removed and internal nasal scarring occurs, resulting in a “pinched in” appearance to the nose and a simultaneous inability to move air freely through the nostrils. Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Morin are experts in performing this type of nasal reconstruction. Please contact NJ Plastic Surgery for more information on nasal reconstruction surgery.
