Plastic Surgery

Reconstructive plastic surgery is a form of plastic surgery which is performed with the purpose of normalizing a patient's appearance. It may be used to modify or repair congenital birth defects such as cleft lips and palates, or to help a patient recover from a catastrophic accident or injury. In some cases, reconstructive plastic surgery is purely cosmetic in nature, with the goal of making the patient feel more comfortable in society, while in other instances, it may be medically necessary. 

Your Primary Care Physician will evaluate your need to see a plastic surgeon.  Your insurance may or may not cover plastic surgery unless it is medically necessary.  If appropriate and covered by your insurance, your Primary Care Physician will give you a referral for treatment.
