What is microsurgery?

Microsurgery has become invaluable in the field of reconstructive surgery. Those patients affected by cancer, trauma, injury and congenital deformities can achieve incredible outcomes through the use of microsurgery. Our Beverly Hills microsurgery is used in cases where the surgeon needs to transfer tissue from one area of the body (the donor site) to a new area of the body.  It is a technique that can even be utilized for aesthetic applications, including autologous breast augmentation, using your own tissue to augment the breast or to replace breast implants.

What are the benefits of microsurgery?

  • Muscle sparing procedures
  • Long-lasting results
  • Aesthetically pleasing outcome
  • Realistic look and feel to the breasts
  • Greater precision and accuracy
  • Improved cosmesis and sculpting of the donor site

Who makes a good candidate for microsurgery?

Dr. Zampell’s Torrance microsurgery is just one of the innovative specialty techniques practiced during autologous breast reconstruction. Dr. Zampell will perform an in-depth physical evaluation at the time of your initial consultation, after which she will determine the best course of action for resolving your concerns. If microsurgery is required, Dr. Zampell will explain the procedure and its goals to you in detail. Rest assured, you will leave your consultation feeling fully informed and empowered.

What can I expect from my microsurgery recovery?

You will be monitored for at least 48 to 72 hours in the hospital after any microsurgical procedure. You may be asked to wear surgical garments to help minimize your swelling and keep your new breast shape intact. Drains may be placed temporarily in order to help rid the body of excess fluids as it heals.

Dr. Zampell will provide a thorough perioperative treatment and recovery plan. She will offer you detailed guidance on healing:

  • Caring for your incisions
  • Taking medications
  • Sleeping, eating and bathing
  • Activity restrictions
  • Scheduling follow-up visits
