Plastic and Reconstructive surgery encompasses reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. The root of many cosmetic procedures is drawn from reconstructive ones. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem. The Mission of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Tohoku University is to provide the highest quality plastic surgical care to all patients in need, provide the most comprehensive level of education and best training program for residents, fellows in Plastic Surgery and to further the science of Plastic Surgery through research.
The research in the laboratory broadly aims at creating better treatment for chronic wounds and lessens the ischemia-reperfusion injuries which impair normal wound healing. In our laboratory, we are in the process of translational research how to normalize critically colonized wounds by using topical agents that destroy the structure of biofilms on the wound surface.
