Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery

Our skilled surgeons perform a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures.

The difference between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery

While cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery (both also known as  plastic surgery) aim to improve the appearance of the body, the goals of each type of surgery are often different.

Cosmetic surgery

The procedures, techniques and principles of cosmetic surgery are focused on enhancing your appearance. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body.

Because the treated areas function properly, cosmetic surgery is considered elective surgery.

Cosmetic surgery procedures include:

  • Breast augmentation, lift and/or reduction

  • Face lift

  • Eyelid repair

  • Liposuction

  • Tummy tuck

  • Removal of excess skin

Reconstructive surgery

Reconstructive surgery focuses on improving the function and/or appearance of a body part affected by:

  • Birth defect

  • Trauma

  • Burns

  • Disease

Examples of reconstructive surgical procedures include:

  • Breast reconstruction after mastectomy

  • Burn repair

  • Congenital defect repair (e.g., cleft palate repair)

  • Removal of damaged tissue

  • Scar revision
