Services and Procedures
What is plastic surgery?
Plastic surgery is the surgical specialty concerned with restoring, correcting, or enhancing a person’s appearance or physical function. The results of plastic surgery can be life changing for patients who have suffered traumatic injuries or who have disfiguring conditions such as burns or wounds to the face or body. For patients who have insecurities about their appearance, our specialist plastic surgeons are on hand to restore their confidence through a range of surgical interventions.
On many occasions, intervention by a plastic surgeon achieves results that are both aesthetic and reconstructive. For example, a plastic surgeon can help achieve the restoration of a woman’s breast after a mastectomy in the fight against breast cancer. With the reconstruction of her breast, the woman can regain her sense of self and thus rediscover her confidence in her physical appearance.

Did you know?
Cleft lip and cleft palate occur when a baby’s mouth or lips do not fully form before birth. Surgery is recommended to fix a cleft lip or palate as it may cause food to pass from the mouth back into the nose. Multiple surgeries from infancy to adulthood can repair and heal a cleft palate.Request an appointment with a plastic surgeon today.
