Reconstructive Surgery is designed to restore proper function or appearance due to trauma, birth defects, or disease.

Common reconstructive procedures include breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer and tissue rearrangement for reconstruction following skin cancer removal. For some patients, reconstructive surgery can also be performed to help manage complications from breast cancer treatment, like lymphedema (tissue swelling).

Reconstructive surgery can also address congenital issues including surgical correction of incompetent lip or palate, which can allow a child to eat and grow normally when addressed early. Or some birthmarks may also be addressed by reconstructive surgery.

Reconstructive surgery procedures may include:

  • Breast reconstruction after lumpectomy or mastectomy
  • Breast reduction
  • Wound care including for burn victims
  • Hand and foot defects
  • Congenital anomalies
  • Deviated septum correction
  • Scar minimization
  • Reconstruction after tumor removal

Reconstructive surgery is considered medically necessary and is usually covered by most insurances.
