BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women in South Africa and one of the main causes of cancer deaths among women worldwide. Frank Graewe and his team provide a variety of reconstruction options for patients, covering the whole spectrum of breast reconstruction surgery that is available. Reconstructive options are chosen according to the best evidence in this field, based on our extensive experience and depending on the specific circumstances, body habitus, cancer diagnosis and treatment plan. State of the art techniques are applied and long term follow up statistics show high success rates and patient satisfaction. Immediate reconstructions are performed within multidisciplinary breast cancer teams and clinics according to current international standards and best practice principles. My approach is patient orientated, striving to improve the quality of life and cosmetic outcome of breast cancer patients with a comprehensive treatment plan adjusted to the specific needs of each individual patient.

CRANIOFACIAL SURGERY

Craniofacial surgery is designed to correct genetic conditions or deformations in the facial or skull areas. Trauma, tumours and complications of infections can also cause craniofacial deformities.

Frank has a special interest in craniofacial surgery and has developed a number of techniques for craniofacial reconstruction that limits the invasiveness of the surgeries and reduces the recovery time. Frank works with an experienced craniofacial team and prefers, if possible, the use of biodegradable material in craniofacial reconstruction.

STEM CELL THERAPY

Fat tissue is an extremely rich source of mesenchymal derived adult stem cells, is easily available and safe to harvest. The biggest advantage of fat is that we can use the patient’s own fat and own stem cells, making the procedure easier and safer, and without ethical issues.

Adipose derived stem cell therapy is one of the new “hot topics” in Medicine worldwide and the implications in Medicine will be revolutionary and far reaching. In plastic surgery we work with fat on a daily basis and because of that adipose derived stem cells and cell enriched procedures are used in a variety of applications.
