Reconstructive surgery is performed to treat structures of the body affected aesthetically or functionally by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease.
Congenital abnormalities are caused by issues during the development of the fetus and fall under two categories: structural or functional. Plastic surgery can correct or improve structural congenital abnormalities, ensuring patients enjoy a higher quality of life and more confidence.
If you have scars that you feel negatively impact your appearance or even your ability to function, scar revision surgery may be a good choice for you. While scar revision surgery can’t remove a scar completely, it can drastically minimize its appearance and allow you to feel more confident.
