For patients who suffer from deformities resulting from birth, traumatic injury or cancer surgery, reconstructive surgery may help. Reconstructive surgery typically is performed with two goals in mind: restoring function and improving appearance.
Surgeons who perform reconstructive surgery have special expertise in plastic surgery for a particular area of the body, such as the face, breast, trunk, upper and lower extremities, or hands.
There are many different types of reconstructive surgery procedures such as:
- Breast reconstruction
- Wound care
- Microsurgery or flap procedures for parts of the body affected by injury or disease, such as cancer.
- Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate
Our plastic surgeons are as concerned with function as with appearance. They collaborate in a multidisciplinary practice to ensure the highest level of patient care and varying aesthetic desires and functionality are met.
