Please read on and view any of the following pages for more information.
We perform several different procedures for breast reconstruction, including free tissue transfer and implant-based procedures. If you’ve undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy to eliminate breast cancer, Dr. Bajaj can guide you through the process of reconstructive surgery. Breast reconstruction can be performed immediately after mastecomy, or it can be delayed and performed later.
DIEP flap breast reconstruction replaces the tissue removed during mastectomy with soft, living tissue by taking skin and fat from the abdomen. An incision is made along the bikini line, much like that used for a tummy tuck. The necessary skin, soft tissue, and feeding blood vessels are removed; the blood vessels are then matched to supplying vessels at the mastectomy site and reattached under a microscope.
TRAM flap reconstruction is one of the many options available to women who need to rebuild and reshape their breasts after having breast cancer removal surgery, or mastectomy. The procedure gets its name from the transverse rectus abdominus myocutaneous muscle that is used, along with surrounding tissue, to perform breast reconstruction.
Skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma are often removed with a simple excision and direct closure technique. If necessary the growth is removed and then examined under a microscope. A variety of techniques can be performed to remove skin cancer with minimal aesthetic change. Dr. Bajaj can recommend and perform the best technique, depending on the type of skin cancer, its stage of growth, and its location on your body.
Scar revision is a procedure offered by Dr. Bajaj that can treat scars that were caused by previous injury, surgery, or burns. If you are bothered by a prominent scar, this procedure may benefit you. Through a variety of different techniques, the operation can make a scar less noticeable.
