Plastic and reconstructive surgery
Plastic surgery has two main components, reconstructive and aesthetic (cosmetic).
Reconstructive plastic surgery covers reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, tumours and other diseases.
Aesthetic surgery can improve the appearance of any part of the body, but specifically includes eyelids, nose, breasts, ears and facial surgery.
Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons provide the full spectrum of reconstructive and cosmetic services for adults and children. We provide holistic care which considers your physical, emotional and psychological needs and our caregivers are available to answer any questions.
