Free Tissue Transfer

Free tissue transfer is commonly used for burns, cancer removal and trauma injuries. The process takes tissue from one area of the body - skin, fat, muscle or bone - and transfers it to another area of the body where it's needed.

Your Free Tissue Transfer Consultation

There are many factors to discuss when considering free tissue transfer. Led by Paul A. Berry, M.D., and Kevin P. Kunkel, M.D., the highly skilled and attentive team at Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery are here to help you make an informed and confident decision. During an initial consultation, they'll take time to:

  • Evaluate the area of your body that needs replacement tissue
  • Determine the area of the body the tissue should be taken from
  • Review your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions, previous surgeries, drug allergies and medical treatments, including current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements, as well as alcohol and tobacco use
  • Discuss general and individual risk factors, as well as potential complications
During this time, we encourage you to be completely candid with your surgeon to help ensure the best possible outcome.
