Good Candidates for Trauma Reconstruction

Patients who want to restore the appearance of an area affected by injury would be ideal candidates for trauma reconstruction procedures. Patients must be in good overall health and must avoid smoking and drinking before their procedure.


Your Consultation

During the consultation for trauma reconstruction, patients will be examined and asked questions about the original injury. Their complete medical history will also be discussed, including any medications that they have been taking and any past procedures.

The details of the trauma reconstruction procedure will then be explained to the patient so that they will know what to expect. Any questions that patients may have can be answered during the consultation.

Trauma Reconstruction

The process of trauma reconstruction varies greatly depending on the details of each case. If skin, muscles, nerves, or bone were damaged, this will affect the process.

Anesthesia will be administered at the start of every reconstruction procedure in order to ensure patient comfort. In some cases, general anesthesia will be required, while in others, a combination of local anesthesia and sedation will be utilized.

Skin grafting is a common technique utilized in trauma reconstruction. This involves transferring skin from another area of the patient’s body to the injured area. As a result, the skin of the area regains a more natural appearance, better matching the surrounding skin.

Tissue flaps may also be transferred. These flap can contain skin, muscle, and fat as needed. During flap-based reconstruction, the tissue flap remains connected to the blood supply of the donor region.

More complex reconstruction techniques may also be utilized in cases where the area affected by trauma involves structures like the nose or the eyes.

Once tissue reconstruction is complete, sutures may be used to close any incisions that were created during the process. The incisions will be dressed appropriately.

Recovery After Trauma Reconstruction

The recovery process after trauma reconstruction may involve a degree of downtime. Patients may need to take time off from work and may need to avoid physically taxing activities for a time. Rest is highly encouraged.

Follow Dr. Prichard’s post-reconstruction care directions as closely as possible to avoid complications and a prolonged healing process. Bruising and swelling may be present in the reconstructed area and can often be treated with the aid of a cold compress. If pain and soreness are felt, patients may be able to take painkillers as prescribed.

Dr. Prichard will evaluate the healing process of the reconstructed area during a follow-up appointment. At this time, any new directions will be given.


I feel very lucky that Prichard is in Arizona. All my facial bones were shattered in a motorcycle accident. Here we are four years later and I once again look like myself. All the doctors that had seen my X-rays had commented on the amazing job Dr. Prichard did, putting me back together.
