Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Correcting Facial and Body Abnormalities

Reconstructive plastic surgery is done to correct facial and body abnormalities caused by birth defects, injury, disease, or aging. Usually, the goal of reconstructive plastic surgery is to improve body function. However, reconstructive plastic surgery may also be done to create a more normal appearance and improve self-esteem (this may also be called cosmetic surgery).

Abnormal structures of the body may result from:

  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Birth defects
  • Disease
  • Tumors

Who is a candidate for reconstructive plastic surgery?

Generally, two types of people have reconstructive plastic surgery, including:

  • People with birth defects (including cleft lip, craniofacial anomalies, or hand deformities)
  • People with deformities (including those due to an accident, infection, disease, or aging)
