Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
We are here to help
Recovering from a serious illness or injury is always a good thing, but often things still need to be addressed after the worst is over. Some serious medical conditions and birth defects leave a person physically disfigured.
Physical abnormalities can have a damaging effect on your self-esteem and even make it difficult for them to perform basic physical activities. While plastic surgery is more widely known as a “luxury” operation, many people can greatly benefit from this important medical procedure.
The purpose of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery
Cosmetic, or aesthetic, surgery is reshaping of normal structures of the body to enhance your appearance and self-esteem. Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct abnormal bodily structures caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities and disease.
Patients diagnosed with the following conditions often seek cosmetic or reconstructive surgery after or during treatment:
- Breast cancer
- Cleft palate
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Pierre Robin sequence (also called syndrome)
- Third-degree burns
Plastic and reconstructive surgery requires skilled surgeons and a committed team. Adventist Health’s team of surgeons and staff come very highly trained and have pioneered procedures in plastic surgery. Whether for cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, our team will work with you to get the best results possible.
