There are accidents out there just waiting to happen. All it takes is one misfortunate moment to leave you with an injury that doesn’t heal quite right. However, there are options for addressing such cases. With modern surgical techniques, Dr. Brent Moelleken offers his patients a wide range of reconstructive procedures.
He understands that healing from an injury can be a tricky process. And, there is always an emotional side to any damage that can affect your physical appearance. Even physically, small changes can have a significant impact on your quality of life. For that reason, Dr. Moelleken strives to provide top-of-the-line reconstructive procedures that help patients regain confidence in their appearance.
What Types of Reconstructive Procedures Are Offered?
In addition to breast reconstruction, we offer the following procedures:
- Post-Trauma Reconstructive Surgery
- Nerve Reconstruction
- Hand Reconstruction
- Eyelid Reconstruction
If you believe that you might fall into one of these categories, contact the offices of Dr. Moelleken today to schedule a consultation.
Post Trauma Reconstructive Surgery
These procedures are for patients who have suffered an accident that has left a significant impact on their bodies. What is vital to note is that these procedures are not to replace emergency help in any situation. Instead, their goal is to restore your appearance after you have received proper medical attention.
These procedures can help patients who have suffered from:
- Dog or animal bites
- Facial trauma
Each of these accidents can vary significantly. In some cases, they may heal on their own. In others, they may require the attention of a specialist like Dr. Brent.
Also known as reconstructive nerve surgery, this procedure aims to preserve the function of damaged nerves. With this surgery, time is of the essence. Ideally, you will have nerve reconstruction on the same day as the injury. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to preserve nerve function.
Using intensive microsurgical techniques, Dr. Brent can help you keep the function of your nerves in injuries from:
- Sharp objects, such as knives
- Nervous injuries from trauma or surgery
- Nerve deficit after removing a nerve tumor
Also called hand reconstruction surgery, this procedure aims to deliver patients with a restored hand. Causes of hand deformity can vary. The main causes are:
- Traumatic injury
- Congenital disabilities
This procedure can vary significantly from one patient to another. It all depends on your unique situation. Some patients may require a straightforward tendon repair. Others might require more in-depth surgery. Dr. Brent will evaluate your needs during your consultation and provide you with a plan for how to meet your needs. As an expert at reconstructive surgeries, Dr. Brent uses his eye for appearance to deliver stunning results.
Common procedures include addressing:
- Malformed digits (ex: webbed fingers or duplicate digits)
- Fingertip injuries
- Hand tumors
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Tendon lacerations
Also called reconstructive eyelid surgery, these procedures aim to rebuild or restore the eyelid. Common reasons to get this surgery include injury or genetic malformations.
Though a small area, the eyelid has a significant impact on our day to day life. Additionally, surgery on the eyelid requires an expert hand and an eye for detail. Dr. Brent is proud to bring his experience to the table to provide this procedure for patients.
Successful reconstruction requires extensive knowledge of the eye and its structure. As a double board-certified reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Brent has both the training and experience to deliver optimal results.
Reconstructive Surgery Recovery
Each reconstructive surgery will be different. No two operations are alike, so the recovery and downtime will vary significantly. However, Dr. Brent will provide you with information about your surgery before performing it. This includes what your recovery will look like and instructions for ensuring it goes well.
During recovery, it will be vital that you follow Dr. Moelleken’s instructions carefully. Taking care of yourself and adhering to Dr. Moelleken’s advice is the best way to ensure that your results meet your goals. If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery, do not hesitate to contact our office.
