Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed to correct facial and body abnormalities caused by birth defects, trauma, disease, or aging.
About 4.9 million reconstructive plastic surgeries are performed each year in the US. Usually, the goal of reconstructive plastic surgery is to improve body function. However, reconstructive plastic surgery may also be performed to create a more normal appearance and improve self-esteem (this may also be called cosmetic surgery).
We offer the full-array of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, including:
- Face lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reconstruction
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
Reconstructive plastic surgery may require multiple procedures done in several stages.
There are a number of areas in plastic surgery that may be either or both reconstructive or cosmetic, depending on a patient's situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may be a procedure performed for cosmetic improvement, as well as to correct eyelids that are drooping severely and obscuring vision.
At our Methodist Germantown and Methodist North Surgery Centers, we offer same day surgery services with highly skilled, experienced surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and other caring staff members. They will take the time to care for your physical and emotional needs and answer any questions you may have before, during and after your visit.
