Skin Flapping surgeries– In this case tissues pieces are transferred from one part of the body to the other, maintaining the underlying blood vessels which help the tissues be alive. It is denoted as flapping surgery as the tissues remain attached to the human during the treatment process.
Expansion of Tissues – In this technique, the tissues are expanded for allowing the body for regrowing extra skin which further helps in reconstructing the impacted areas.
Fat transferring– In pediatric plastic surgeries, fats might be used for correcting deformities. The fats are removed from one part of the body and inserted in the impacted areas.
Vacuum closures– In this technique of plastic surgeries suction methods are used on the wounds. This is done by using sterile foams and gauze in the injury for drawing out fluids which fastens the processes of healing. Some of the other ways of treating the wounds include using make-up with camouflages or similar types of creams. In adverse cases, the deformed limb is replaced with prosthetic and artificial limbs.
