How can patients with large skin wounds benefit from Plastic Surgery?
Large skin defects caused by trauma or cancer surgery can not only be reconstructed but the function of body part can also be regained.
Post traumatic large skin defects usually occur after accidents especially road traffic accidents. These large skin defects may be accompanied with fracture of bones. In such cases early reconstruction of wounds can not only save patients from a number of complications but can be life or limb saving in some cases. Cancers arising from skin or involving skin leave a large defect after excision, which needs reconstruction by Plastic Surgeon.
