Cancer is the scourge of our modern day, and it can appear virtually anywhere in the body. When cancer is detected early enough, most cancers are treatable and defeatable; but some can leave ugly scars and damage, especially when they appear on the face and neck. Dr. Joshua D. Rosenberg is one of the top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in New York City, and is an expert in utilizing some of the most advanced techniques for microvascular reconstruction surgery.
Hope After Face and Neck Cancer
Microvascular reconstruction surgery uses advanced reconstructive techniques to repair or replace tissue lost during tumor or cancer removal from the face or neck. Dr. Rosenberg meticulously harvests the needed bones, muscle, nerves and skin from other less vital areas of the body to repair and replace lost tissue. This complex and intricate surgical process is performed under a microscope to ensure pinpoint accuracy and suturing.
It is vital that the tissues are carefully transplanted to regain function, but aesthetics are also important. The face and neck are entirely visible, and therefore care must be taken to restore your original appearance as much as possible. Dr. Rosenberg’s expertise in both functional reconstruction and cosmetic techniques will ensure that the reconstructed areas both look and function normally.
