Plastic surgery includes both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery corrects abnormalities caused by birth defects, developmental problems, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease. This type of surgery is performed either to improve function or create a more normal appearance. Although coverage varies, reconstructive surgery tends to be covered by health insurance.
Our plastic surgeons perform a variety of reconstructive procedures, including:
- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy
- Breast reduction
- Cleft lip and palate
- Facial fractures
- Gynecomastia (male breast reduction)
- Hand surgery
