What exactly is Microsurgery?

Reconstructive microsurgery is a surgical speciality that uses sophisticated operating microscopes and precise instruments to repair complex systems as small as a few millimetres in diameter, such as blood arteries and nerves. This discipline has had a significant influence in restoring shape and function to persons who have been harmed by trauma, cancer, or congenital abnormalities.

Microsurgical treatments encompass a wide spectrum of highly customised surgeries. Microsurgical reconstruction is usually reserved for difficult reconstructive surgery problems where other alternatives (primary closure, skin grafting, local or regional flap transfer) are insufficient.

Microsurgery techniques that are often used

  • Free tissue transfer for breast reconstruction
  • Reconstruction of the head and neck utilising free tissue transfer
  • For certain forms of muscular paralysis, free muscle transfer is functional.
  • Transfer of a Vascularized Bone Flap
  • Reconstruction of complex wounds
  • Transplantation of a toe
  • Replantation of digits
  • Nerve grafting and repair
  • Lymphatic redevelopment

What steps are included in a Microsurgery procedure?

Step 1- Anaesthesia

During the surgical process, you will be given medications to help you relax. Because of their precision and frequently lengthy duration, microsurgical operations are generally conducted under general anaesthesia.

Step 2 – Making the incision

A donor site and a recipient site are involved in a free tissue transfer utilising microsurgery. First, the recipient location may be prepped after cancer or scar tissue has been surgically removed. At the recipient location, tiny blood vessels and nerves are meticulously dissected. Once a suitable donor site has been identified, tissue can be separated based on its own blood supply. Using an operating microscope, the tissue is then removed from the body and blood vessels are reattached at the recipient location.

Step 3: Finishing the incisions

Incisions may need to be closed with detachable sutures, skin adhesives, or dissolving sutures depending on your condition and operation.

Step 4 – Analyse the results

As swelling subsides, the benefits of microsurgery will become apparent. It is possible that your ultimate result will not be achieved for several months.


Microsurgery, in its widest definition, refers to any surgery performed under the magnification of a microscope. Microsurgery has considerably extended the variety of treatments that surgeons may do safely and successfully in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery by allowing far better accuracy in numerous procedures.

Microsurgery allows surgeons to use special operating microscopes to reconnect severed fingers or transplant huge portions of tissue, muscle, or bone from one region of the body to another, vastly increasing our doctors' capacity to treat patients. The blood vessels and nerves from the portion (or flap) being transferred are carefully reattached using the power of the operating microscope to magnify the region being operated on, so the transplanted tissue may thrive in the new place and feel in the transplanted tissue is preserved.

Microsurgery cases might be the most difficult in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. The Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery's surgeons have the requisite training, skill, and experience in microsurgery.
