“Omniverse Plastikos”- the universal sculpturer – is the clinic for plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand, wrist and microsurgery and burn surgery of Dr. Arno R. Schleich MD in Mississippi, USA.
Dr. Schleich is trained and board certified in the United States and Europe, where he maintains licensure and credentials for active private or academic practice, with additional subspecialty fellowship training in hand, craniofacial and burn surgery.
Complex Reconstructive Surgery
The reconstructions of complex defects, wounds and deformities falls into the realm of tissue transfer. We offer many scientifically proven options including microsurgical tissue transplantation for breast reconstruction and head and neck reconstruction, limb salvage after open fractures or ampuations and the coverage of chronic wounds.
The reconstruction of peripheral nerve injuries including those of the brachial plexus using techniques ranging from nerve grafting and berve transfers (neurotizations) to regional and free functional muscle transfers plays an important role in our reconstructive armamentarium.
Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic procedures are performed upon request of the client for the adornment of the human form and shape. We offer the entire spectrum of cosmetic surgery using cutting edge insights and techniques of proven safety and efectiveness to accompany our clients on their journey towards the “ideal, beautiful and normal”. Abdomnioplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation and enhancement, breast lifting, breast reduction, face lifts, midface lifts, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, otoplasty, forehead lifting, liposuction, fat transfer, buttock implants and lifts and lower body lifts are representative of the services we offer.
Craniofacial surgery in its purest form is surgery of the facial skeleton and skull. It corrects congenital and acquired malformations of the skull, eye sockets, nose and upper and lower jaws. Craniofacial techniques have made complex injuries and tumor resections of the jaws, orbits and skull base as well as previously untractable entities such as Crouzon’s syndrome amenable to reconstruction. The correction of cleft lip and palate plays a prominent role in craniofacial surgery at our institution.
We provide the expertise to perform all major craniofacial osteotomies such as LeFort I – III, monobloc, orbital, facial bipartition and sagittal split osteotomies as well as complex facial fracture repairs and reconstructions after trauma or tumor resections and employ pioneering techniques for craniofacial distraction osteogenesis.
Hand, Wrist and Microsurgery
Comprehensive management of the hand and wrist joint from congenital problems in infants and children to degenerative problems in the aging hand including the most complex injuries in all age groups is performed by subspecialty trained hand surgeons . We perform arthroplasties, arthroscopy, arthrodeses and fracture fixations of the hand, wrist and distal radius, tendon repairs and reconstructions, manage nerve compressions, microsurgical nerve repairs, grafting and reconstruction and apply microvascular techniques to replant amputated parts from fingers to entire hands and arms, take care of infections of the hand rehabilitate Dupuytren’s and other contractures.
Hand surgery is a truly interdisciplinary speciality and we draw from the best in plastic, orthopaedic and neurosurgery to offer to our clients.
We provide services for all phases of burn care from acute, early excision and grafting of minor and major burn injuries to late reconstructions of severe burn scarring and deformities in pediatric and adult age groups. Subspecialty trained surgeons in hand and craniofacial surgery draw from their expertise in the reconstruction in these cosmetically and functionally important areas to provide optimal rehabilitation.
Pediatric Plastic Surgery
Our surgeons have trained at the top children’s hospitals in the United States in craniofacial, cleft and hand surgery and have successfully corrected life threatening congenital deformities in neonates. We provide cleft lip/palate corrections, reconstruction of craniofacial deformities, vascular malformations, giant nevi, and burn care in children and manage deformities and injuries of the growing hand.
