Welcome to

Repair, Restore, Refine

Plastic surgery embraces cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. The word plastic evolved from the Greek word "plastikos" which means to mold, shape, or give form to.

Cosmetic surgery enhances appearance and self-esteem by reshaping and refining normal structures of the body.

Reconstructive surgery repairs and restores function and proximates the normal appearance of abnormal structures caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease.

Health insurance usually does not cover cosmetic procedures but frequently covers reconstructive procedures although coverage may vary. This variance has resulted in patient advocacy for access to specialty care.
