My husband is 50 years old and he has a open leg ulcer that goes all the way around his leg. We were told by one doctor that plastic surgery would work for a short time, I just need to know if it would work, even if it is just for a short time?

To answer your question, I would need to know what this ulcer due to, and what the proposed plastic surgery procedure is. Ulcers on the legs can be caused by a number of different factors, such as arterial or venous insufficiency, trauma, burn, excess pressure, ec. To fix the wound is not always the entire answer, since you really need to fix what is causing that wound, so that it doesn’t just return, or return in a different location.
