Shoulder Plastic Surgery

Shoulder plastic surgery is an operation to repair or replace damaged cartilage, bone and tendons. This procedure can reduce pain and restore the shoulder’s normal function. Your doctor may recommend this surgery when other treatments, such as medicine or physical therapy, no longer relieve your symptoms. You should be in good overall health to undergo this surgery and to recover fully. People who smoke or have certain heart, lung, kidney, bladder, or blood diseases may have an increased risk of complications.어깨필러비용

Your surgeon will make one or two small incisions, called portals, in the front of your shoulder or in the back of your shoulder joint. Through these portals, hollow instruments are inserted into the shoulder joint. A camera attached to a television monitor helps your surgeon view the inside of the shoulder joint. The surgeon can then use the arthroscopic camera to look for any areas of damage or disease in the cartilage, bones and tendons. The surgeon can also remove any bony growths, called spurs, that are causing pain or interfering with joint movement.

The surgeon can also fix tears in the rotator cuff, by inserting a needle into the shoulder joint to pull the rotator cuff tendon tighter and repair the tear with sutures or tendons reinforced with small rivets (like those used in automobile suspension).

In some cases, your doctor may recommend total shoulder replacement surgery. This involves replacing both the “ball” and the “socket” of your shoulder joint with an implant. An orthopaedic surgeon* will numb your arm and shoulder area with general anesthesia or regional anesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain during the operation. The surgeon makes a small incision and inserts the arthroscope into your shoulder joint through it. The arthroscopic camera is connected to a video monitor in the operating room. The surgeon can now see the tissues inside your shoulder joint and around it.

Next, the surgeon removes your old shoulder joint and cleans the area around it. He or she may also remove any arthritic tissue that is causing pain or interference with joint movement. The surgeon can then place the new joint implant in the socket portion of your shoulder, reshape the metal stem that goes into the upper arm bone and add a plastic liner to create a smooth surface. The surgeon can then put a “ball” on the end of the metal stem and slide it into the socket part to complete your new shoulder joint.

Most patients regain about two-thirds of the movement they had before their shoulder injury or surgery. However, how much shoulder movement you have depends on how far your shoulder moved before the injury or surgery and whether the muscles surrounding your shoulder were also damaged.

A successful result from your shoulder surgery depends on the quality of your physical therapy. Find a physical therapist who is familiar with your procedure, has good communication skills and will help you achieve the results you want.닥터케빈의원
