What is tumor excision and reconstruction?
Tumor excision and reconstruction is a surgical procedure performed to remove tumors or abnormal growths in various parts of the body, including the skin, soft tissues, or orbit. The primary goal of this procedure is to remove the tumor while preserving surrounding healthy tissues and structures. This treatment offers patients the opportunity to not only eliminate cancerous or abnormal growths but also to achieve optimal functional and cosmetic outcomes. At Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Warner specializes in the excision and biopsy of fossa tumors.
Am I a candidate?
Candidates for tumor excision and reconstruction are individuals diagnosed with tumors or abnormal growths that require surgical removal. These tumors can occur in various locations throughout the body, such as the skin, soft tissues, or sockets. Candidates may include individuals with both benign and malignant tumors, depending on the nature and severity of the condition. The decision to undergo tumor excision and reconstruction is based on several factors, including the size, location, and type of tumor, as well as the patient’s overall health and individual circumstances.
What can I expect during tumor excision and reconstruction?
The process begins with a thorough evaluation and consultation to determine the best surgical approach and reconstruction plan based on the location, size, and characteristics of the tumor. The surgery itself is typically performed under general anesthesia, ensuring the patient’s comfort throughout the procedure. Dr. Warner and his team will meticulously remove the tumor, employing advanced techniques to minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissues and structures. Reconstruction techniques are then utilized to restore the affected area’s form and function, which may involve skin grafts, flap reconstruction, or the use of implants or prosthetics.
What can I expect after the procedure?
Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the procedure, and you may experience temporary discomfort, swelling, or bruising. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor healing, address any concerns, and ensure optimal outcomes. While the journey may require patience and ongoing care, the goal is to successfully remove the tumor, restore function and aesthetics, and improve your quality of life. By collaborating closely with Dr. Warner and adhering to his post-operative instructions, you can expect a comprehensive and supportive experience during tumor excision and reconstruction.
