Dr. Anup Patel is comfortable operating from head to toe with tremendous knowledge experience in soft-tissue reconstruction. We use various plastic surgery techniques including appropriate selection of suture and approximation of the soft-tissue to reapproximate the wound edges in a tensionless free manner to optimize cosmetic outcomes.
