Reconstructive or restorative surgery is a branch of clinical medicine, the main purpose of which is the correction of congenital and acquired body deformities and functional disorders both genetic, and due to diseases, injuries.
The main goal of reconstructive (restorative) surgery is to ensure the functioning of organs, as well as to achieve an aesthetic effect.
Reconstructive surgical operations are of particular importance for congenital and acquired body defects that either significantly reduce the quality of life or even completely incompatible with life.
Restoration of the structure and functions of body tissues after their damage as a result of trauma, birth defects or oncological diseases. This may include the restoration of bones, joints, muscles, skin and organs. Reconstructive surgery is used to improve the quality and functional condition of the patient.
If necessary, specialists will consult residents not only of Ukraine, but also of any country in the world, both in the clinic in Kiev and online by appointment.

in the case of taking any drugs, inform the doctor about it and agree with him (it may be necessary to limit them or change the dose, regimen)
for a few days before the operation, follow a gentle diet, water-drinking regime; if there is constipation, take laxatives, use enemas and do not drink alcoholic beverages – so that the body reacts more adequately and predictably to anesthesia and other drugs
refrain from eating for 6–12 hours before the operation, and for 2–4 hours also do not drink, do not use chewing gum, do not smoke – to prevent stomach contents from entering the respiratory organs during anesthesia
on the day of the operation, take a shower, cleanse the intestines with an enema – so that during anesthesia, due to the relaxation of the sphincters, feces do not come out involuntarily
immediately before the operation :
removable objects (piercing jewelry, prostheses) should be removed from the oral cavity and face – so that during the operation they do not accidentally enter the respiratory organs or interfere with the surgical intervention; remove other items (contact lenses, hearing aids, jewelry, etc.) – so that they do not accidentally injure the body and do not get spoiled; cosmetic products (makeup, nail polish, artificial nails) should be removed from the body – to facilitate visual assessment of the body's condition and automated registration using medical equipment; empty the bladder and, if necessary, the intestine – so that this does not happen involuntarily during anesthesia; changing into special clothes, which are given in the clinic
addition, other preparatory measures may be carried out taking into account the individual characteristics of the organism and the specifics of the surgical intervention
The main stages:
or escorted on foot. In the airlock room, a medical cap and shoe covers are put on (to prevent microorganisms from entering the air of the operating room)
by an operational team of a certain composition, taking into account the specifics of each operation
(depending on the specifics of the operation, the position of the body may differ), fixed to it with special straps
performs a vein puncture on the hand, installs a catheter to administer the necessary drugs, installs electrodes on the body to monitor the electrical activity of the heart, puts a tonometer cuff on the shoulder, and a sensor to determine the oxygen level in the blood. All this is necessary for continuous monitoring of the body's condition during anesthesia and surgery
depends on the specific task, the part of the body on which the intervention is carried out, corresponds to the features of the selected surgical tactics, technique
After surgery, the patient wakes up in the ward for postoperative observation. If necessary, oxygen can be supplied through a thin tube to provide the body with a sufficient amount of oxygen. The nurse will carefully monitor the condition of the body and, if necessary, apply drugs agreed with the doctor.
Before patient’s return home, the doctor will examine the areas where the intervention was performed, agree on the tactics of further rehabilitation, give additional advice.
We perform all surgical interventions in accordance with the standards of the European Association of Reconstructive Surgeons.
We use IPRAS standards
We involve well-known foreign surgeons in all surgical interventions.
We simulate and guarantee the results of surgical intervention. We use biopolymers and autotissues of the patient himself, autografting techniques.
Surgical interventions are carried out with the help of modern techniques of the hardware base of 2021 – these are laser installations, endoscopic, laparoscopic equipment and modern possibilities of growing the patient’s own tissues, in particular skin.

Reconstructive surgery is a branch of clinical medicine that deals with restoring the structure and function of congenital or acquired, deformed or lost parts of the body. Conventionally, plastic surgery allows you to get rid of defects, and reconstructive surgery – to restore parts of the body. In fact, these two fields have a conditional distinction and in practice are combined as reconstructive plastic operations.
The duration and number of stages of reconstructive surgery vary depending on each individual case – from a few tens of minutes to a much longer period.
The guarantee for reconstructive surgery refers to the proper performance of services, high-tech diagnostics, treatment, high qualification of specialists, implants and other medical consumables and equipment.
Before deciding to perform reconstructive surgery, thorough laboratory and instrumental studies should be carried out, the results of which will make it possible to make sure of the proper condition of the body and the safety of surgical treatment.
Possible complications after reconstructive surgeries include bleeding and thrombosis, infectious and inflammatory conditions, cosmetic defects, etc. Careful preparation for the operation, highly qualified and experienced medical staff, modern high-tech equipment and coordinated work of the medical team and other staff of the clinic minimize the risk of complications.
Contraindications to reconstructive operations are conditions, the severity of which critically increases the risks of surgical treatment, for example, infectious, mental, gastrointestinal, diseases, etc.
