At Southwest General Hospital, physicians use reconstructive surgery as a tool that restores both physical appearance as well as inner-confidence.
Reconstructive surgery is available for skin cancer survivors (especially common here in San Antonio), breast cancer patients and survivors, and patients who have advanced wounds, burns, facial fractures, and clefts.
The final test results have come in, and the verdict is good. You’ve defeated your cancer. After a brief sigh of relief, you’re already thinking about the next phase:But what about the scars? The wounds? The lost tissue?
The board certified plastic surgeons at Southwest General Hospital are here to help you along, every step of the way. Having treated hundreds of cancer survivors, burn survivors, patients with congenital defects, and advanced wounds, the reconstructive surgeons at Southwest General Hospital can help you look your absolute best.
Skin Cancer – One of San Antonio’s Biggest Dangers
In San Antonio, skin cancer is a serious health threat. While San Antonio has many excellent dermatologists and specialists, cosmetic treatment of the affected area requires a different approach. Once the lumps and bumps of skin cancer have been removed, it takes the skilled hand of a cosmetic surgeon to smooth over these wounds. If the wounds are in highly visible areas, such as the face, then the need for quality post-cancer reconstruction is especially great.
Post-Breast Cancer Reconstruction Surgery
In order to fully treat breast cancer, many women have to undergo a mastectomy (removal of one or more breasts). Choosing a board certified surgeon at Southwest General Hospital may improve your chances of getting the full look that you want.
If you have already had a mastectomy and a successful treatment, you may wish to turn your attention to breast reconstruction with a plastic surgeon here in South San Antonio.
Other Reconstructive Surgeries (Hand, Clefts, Facial Fractures & More)
Other reasons for reconstructive surgery include:
- Treatment of the hand, including rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Dupuytren’s contracture.
- Treatment of cleft lip and cleft palate, facial fractures, and other diseases and injuries
- Reconstructive grafts for skin growths, diseases, and trauma
- Treatment of advanced wounds and burns

Post-Bariatric Surgery (Body Contouring)
Many patients who have achieved significant weight loss (through surgical or non-surgical means) feel like they’ve hit a plateau after several months. The truth is, once diet and exercise can no longer produce results, the real problem might be more than what nature’s capable of handling.
Over time, the skin loses its natural elasticity. No topical cream or injection can ever permanently restore this elasticity once it’s lost. And, in the case of patients with significant weight loss, surgery is the only method for tightening skin and smoothing the body’s contours.
