The Plastic Surgery Center, a multifacility practice of six surgeons, has opened its newest facility in the Cape May Court House campus of AtlantiCare Health Park.

The office is the 12th for the center, most in New Jersey but also in Philadelphia and New York.

This new facility offers standard and specialized cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery services.

The Court House center also features breast reconstruction surgery for cancer patients using the advanced Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator, or DIEP, flap technique.

The technique is a technically more demanding procedure that uses the patient’s own tissue but also has the benefit of not requiring use of abdominal muscle tissue, the center said.

The new office also features skin cancer surgery, which is of special importance in light of the fact that Cape May County has the highest skin cancer rate in the state, the Plastic Surgery Center said.

The Cape May Court House office also offers the convenience of onsite procedures at the AtlantiCare Surgery Center, which is devoted exclusively to same-day surgery.

Dr. Adam Saad is on staff at the office and performs all aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

A New Jersey native, Saad trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Louisiana State University in New Orleans.

While there, he acquired a significant amount of experience in microsurgery, especially with regard to the DIEP flap for breast reconstruction, which was pioneered at LSU.

Saad also specializes in fat grafting, as well as advanced reconstructive microsurgery of the face and hand.

The mission of the Plastic Surgery Center and its co-practice, the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, is to combine advanced care in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.

The team of doctors, with more than 50 years of combined experience, perform facial, skin, and body cosmetic surgery.
