Types of Plastic Surgery

There are different types of plastic surgery depending on which cancer it is, such as endoscopic and flap surgery. Harry Salinas, Plastic Surgeon at Miami Cancer Institute, describes endoscopic surgery as a procedure assisted by cameras to do things through small ports, more like laparoscopic surgery.

He also says with flap surgery he can move tissues around in the body to recreate a breast or fill in an effect in the nose after a skin cancer. There are other types of surgery techniques, like lase technology, skin grafts and tissue expansion.
