Craniofacial consists of both oral and maxillofacial surgery. It often involves with manipulation of bone and used to repair or reshape the face and skull of a person. Craniofacial reconstruction is sometimes called orbital craniofacial surgery. Craniofacial surgeons include craniosynostosis, rare craniofacial clefts, acute and chronic sequelae of facial fractures.

Rebuilding of Breast by plastic surgeon by artificial implant usually in women is known as Breast reconstruction. It involves using autologous tissue to construct a natural appearing Breast which takes place soon after Mastectomy. Breast reconstruction also can be done many months or even years after lumpectomy.

Hair Transplantation is a technique that moves hair from one part of the body called donor site to bald. it is used to treat baldness in which hair is removed from sides of the head and transplanted in the front and top of the head. The hair transplantation technique is called follicular unit transplantation which involves extracting a linear strip of hair bearing from the back or the side of the scalp and it is dissected to separate individual grafts.

Microsurgery is a surgical discipline that combines magnification with advanced diploscopes, specialized precision tools and various operating techniques. Two of the main purposes of microsurgery are to transplant tissue from one part of the body to another and to reattach parts. These techniques are primarily used to anastomose small blood vessels and to coapt nerves. Microsurgery helps to heal wounds, restore function after trauma, and restore form after cancer. It can assist in the recovery and healing of a wide array of medical issues, from emergency amputations to reconstoration of the human breast.

Skin Cancer Reconstruction
Skin cancers is either surgical excision or Mohs chemosurgery. Mohs surgery is a procedure performed by a dermatologic surgeon to completely clear the tumor by carefully excising close margins of the tumor and examining this under the microscope until the tumor is completely cleared. This has been proven to improve cure rates over simple excision alone while making sure to remove as little tissue as possible.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Cosmetic Ear surgery is also Known as otoplasty. It is an aesthetic procedure that alters the size, position, or proportion of the ears. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat miss happen ears caused by injury.

Hair Drug Testing
Hair Drug Testing is administered to detect parent drugs as well as their metabolites in the hair specimen collected from a donor’s body or head and can offer an extended, So, any specimens that are collected outside this detection window might not appear in the hair test. A drug test may also refer to a test that provides quantitative chemical analysis of an illegal drug, typically intended to help with responsible drug use.

Head and Neck Reconstruction
Tumors that affect the regions of the head and neck may require surgery. This may affect the way patients are able to speak and swallow. Distortion of the head and neck region can have devastating effects on appearance and function of the patient and are among the most disabling and socially isolating defects with significant impact on patient’s quality of life. Head and neck tumors are strongly associated with a history of smoking and alcohol consumption, but recent evidence has shown that low economic status is a strong risk factor, comparable to tobacco and alcohol.

Wound Healing is divided into four phases they are hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and maturation. When the skin is injured, our body sets into motion an automatic series of events, often referred to as the “cascade of healing,” in order to repair the injured tissues. When the right healing environment is established, the body works in right way to heal and replace fatigue tissue.
