Dr. Kote practices the full scope of plastic surgery with an emphasis on cosmetic, breast surgery, and post-weight reduction procedures. As a board-certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Kote performs aesthetic and reconstructive procedures to the highest standards.
Breast reconstruction is a surgery performed to restore the shape of the breasts after the tissue is removed during mastectomy (conducted to treat or prevent breast cancer).
Minimal-scar breast reduction involves liposuction to remove excess fat tissue from the breast. It is normally sought by women who wish to accomplish an aesthetically pleasing breast contour and size proportionate to their body, and to mitigate the discomfort associated with unusually large breasts.
Weight loss can lead to significant changes in one’s lifestyle. After a significant weight loss, you tend to have excessive skin in different areas of the body. This is caused due to permanent damage in the elasticity of these tissues, hence hindering the retraction of the skin back to its shape. This loose skin can be treated through plastic surgery or body contouring procedures. These procedures remove the excess fat and baggy skin to improve the shape of the underlying tissues.
Reconstructive microsurgery combines magnification with an advanced microscope, specialized precision tools, and various operating techniques for the surgical treatment of complicated injuries involving the muscles, tendons, blood vessels, nerves, skin, and bones. It allows the surgeon to utilize the injured person’s own tissue or bone to cover a wound, reconstruct an arm or a leg, or restore lost function.
Reconstructive plastic surgery is used to correct abnormalities in body structure due to cancer and tumor removal. It is usually performed in those treated for breast or head and neck cancer but can be carried out on any part of the body to restore aesthetics and function. The reconstructive procedure may be performed during surgery for cancer removal or as a separate procedure.
