Major deficits in any area of the body, face or upper and lower ends which have occurred due to accident, amputation or oncological surgeries can today be restored aesthetically and functionally by the use of free flaps (free tissue transfer).

Free tissue transfer technique regards the detachment of the tissue, along with its blood supply from the original location ("donor site") and its transfer to the defect’ s location ("recipient site") and at the same time, the blood supply is reconstituted using microsurgical techniques to reconnect the artery and vein.

It is a complex surgical technique, however, is the only solution to cover such deficits and can be performed only by plastic surgeons qualified in microsurgical techniques.

Dr. Kretsis is qualified in microsurgery and faces problems concerning reconstructive microsurgery daily.
