Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Procedures to Restore Physical Function & Appearance

Plastic surgery focuses on the repair and reconstruction of injuries, defects, or the aesthetic consequences of cancer surgery, such as mastectomy, to achieve the closest possible result to normal form and function. plastic surgeons perform procedures on virtually every part of the body, including the skin, musculoskeletal system, face and head, hand, extremities, breasts and torso, and genitals.

A plastic surgeon has specialized skills in procedures involving grafts, flaps, free tissue transfer, implantable materials, and, possible replantation of severed body parts such as fingers. Plastic surgeons also have special expertise in the management of complex wounds.

Plastic Surgery vs. Cosmetic Surgery

People use the terms “plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery” interchangeably, but they are NOT the same. Cosmetic surgery is elective surgery that focuses on enhancing appearances, such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, or rhinoplasty. These procedures are NOT covered by insurance. Also, the certifications for board certifications for cosmetic surgery are different than for plastic surgery.
