Notice to patients who received breast reconstructive surgery with breast implants

Introduction

Making good use of plastic surgery
Responsibility Saitama Medical Center
Department of Plastic Surgery Toshiharu Minabe

Plastic surgery is a medical field (basic medical department) that first treats the face, and then systemic diseases of the skin and subcutaneous tissues by surgery. Unfortunately, there are not enough hospitals and clinics with this department in Saitama Prefecture, even though there is a population of 7.3 million people.

The face, which is the organ that symbolizes us as human beings, includes the forehead, eyelids, external ear, and the outer nose and lips and is always exposed, and it protects the brain, senses and feeding. The plastic surgeon must not only understand the important structures of the face, but also have sufficient knowledge of the frame, the muscles, and the nerves and the blood vessels which support it. Also, since wounds (scars) can also impair the "morphology and function" of the face after a fresh wound has healed, it is the only specialized department that is familiar with how to heal wounds and aims for a "clean appearance" (esthetic outcome).

Facial illnesses include congenital abnormalities such as cleft lip, blepharoptosis, accessory auricle, and microtia, as well as injuries and burns, benign and malignant tumors, facial fractures, canalis facialis, and postoperative deformations and deficiencies after surgery from other departments. It also supports blepharoptosis and stains/sagging which are age-related dysfunctions. The same treatment techniques used for the face can be applied to abnormalities of the limbs (polysyndactia, skin ulcers, trauma, and tumors) which are likewise exposed.

Plastic surgeons of our department have advanced medical treatment techniques, such as skin transplants, skin flaps and micro surgery, and we perform surgical treatments for breast reconstruction and limb lymphedema. We are one of the most high-volume hospitals in these cases in Saitama Prefecture. In addition, non-operative treatments such as negative pressure closure therapy have been introduced as methods to assist advanced surgery, and treatment with surgery and other treatments is done according to the condition. In other words, we practice "Your Happiness is our Happiness" which prioritizes patient-oriented treatment.

"Wound Care day" was enacted on the 5th of May each year, which is Children's Day or "kid's day" in Japan as the anniversary of the treatment by a plastic surgeon.

Patient care at our department

The reception time for initial consultation with patients is between 8:30 am and 11:00 am.

[Medical Service Content]

In our hospital, we perform all-round plastic surgery in general.

External wounds
Since we have the Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, which is ranked in top level in the country, in our hospital, there are many trauma cases such as severe burns, facial traumas, and cut fingers, and especially facial traumas (nasal fractures, zygomatic fractures, orbital fractures, maxillary fractures, and multiple facial fractures).
Lymphedema
This is performed for Lymphedema by a physician specializing in lymphatic microvenous anastomosis. We conduct comprehensive treatment in cooperation with the Lymphedema therapist, and postoperative treatment targets synergistic effects with the surgery by performing a collection of medical treatments in cooperation with the rehabilitation with a concentrated drainage program.
Breast reconstruction
Silicone implants and self-tissue reconstruction can be used in breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery depending on the patient's wishes and circumstances. Also, we are also focusing on the primary reconstruction, inserting the tissue expansion device at the same time in cooperation with the Department of Breast Care.
Blepharoptosis
Drooping of the eyelids is caused by the loosening of the muscles that lift the eyelid due to age. It is said that this often causes headaches, stiff shoulders, and eye strain. It is known that the symptoms are improved by blepharoptosis surgery.
Congenital malformations in children
We treat congenital abnormalities in various areas, including cleft lip and palate, congenital abnormalities of the fingers, the toes, the ears, and the navel, etc.
Endoscopic operations
Audipoma is a highly frequent disease. In our hospital, this is treated with an endoscopic approach using a small incision, and the level of satisfaction is high.
Cosmetic Surgery
As a university hospital, we formally advocate for "cosmetic surgery" and perform surgical procedures incorporating cosmetic surgical techniques for the eyelid, nose, breast, liposuction and infusion, etc.
