Surgical Expertise


Children are not young adults which makes working with them a both a challenge and a joy. Children need to feel safe and respected and be active participants in their care. Each patient requires a specialized care plan, not only for the defect at hand but for the family and caregivers as well. When you meet with Dr. Dickie you will see there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to pediatric surgery. A well tailored plan can be the difference between success and failure.

Adult Reconstructive

Trauma or cancer can have dramatic effects on a person’s appearance or function.  The goals of reconstructive surgery are not only to correct the deformity, but to give a person back that sense of normalcy.  Plastic surgical techniques aim to restore the functional anatomy with aesthetics always in mind.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted some surgery cases. This fine young woman had already had #mohssurgery on her nose. Closure with a direct advancement flap on the left. So where I would typically do a rotation advancement or a bilobe flap there were scars at the base of both designs limiting what I thought would survive. So instead I trimmed and shortened her lower lateral cartilages with a tip rhinoplasty, closed the skin along the tip #subunit and removed #burowstriangles along the alar creases. This is her at 1 month. Happy Monday! ...
