Surgeons in the Division of Plastic Surgery are world-renowned leaders in their field, and offer a wealth of experience and technical expertise. They routinely apply minimal access techniques and technological advances to dramatically shorten recovery time and improve patient outcomes. The procedures they perform include those listed below.

Pediatric Craniofacial Surgery

Our craniofacial and cleft team is an interdisciplinary group of healthcare professionals dedicated to the care of infants, children and adolescents with malformations of the face, mouth, ears, and skull, as well as children requiring reconstructive surgery following trauma, burns and cancer.

Our pediatric craniofacial and cleft team is an interdisciplinary group of healthcare professionals dedicated to the care of infants, children and adolescents with malformations of the face, mouth, ears, and skull, as well as children requiring reconstructive surgery following trauma, burns and cancer. The Center was made possible ;by a generous gift by David H. and Phyllis Komansky

The expertise include the reconstruction of cleft lip and palate, ear malformations, facial asymmetry, skull malformations and premature closure of skull bones (craniosynostosis), acute and late facial trauma, complex congenital anomalies, craniofacial turmors and vascular malformations. Other members of the craniofacial team include:

  • pediatric neurosurgeons who address birth defects affecting the brain, skull and spine
  • oculoplastic surgeons who specialize in the reconstruction of the eye
  • child neurologists who diagnosis and manage neurodevelopmental challenges

Reconstructive Surgery

The goals of reconstructive surgery are to reshape abnormal structures of the body, improve function, and create a more normal appearance for the patient. These abnormal structures may be the result of birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma or injury, infection, tumors, or disease. Our experienced surgeons perform all fo the following procedures:

  • abdominal wall reconstruction
  • breast reconstruction following mastectomy or lumpectomy
  • ear reconstruction/otoplasty
  • extremity reconstruction
  • microsurgery and flap procedures
  • nasal reconstruction
  • reconstruction following excision of skin cancer (Mohs surgery)
  • skin lesion excision
  • trauma surgery

Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery helps to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient's appearance. A patient-focused healthcare team guides patients each step of the way, from making the decision to have a procedure through recovery and follow-up.

Our experienced surgeons are highly skilled in a wide range of elective cosmetic procedures, including breast reconstruction, augmentation and reduction, facial rejuvenation, liposuction, abdominoplasty and rhinoplasty.

Aesthetic procedures provided by the Division of Plastic Surgery include the following:
  • abdominal contour
  • arm lift
  • BOTOX®
  • breast augmentation
  • breast lift (mastoplexy)
  • breast reconstruction after mastectomy for cancer
  • breast reduction
  • brow lift
  • cheek implants (malar augmentation)
  • chemical peel and dermabrasion
  • chin augmentation (genioplasty)
  • ear surgery (otoplasty)
  • eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
  • face lift (rhytidectomy)
  • forehead lift
  • injectables (restylane, fat, and collagen)
  • laser surgery (resurfacing for lines and wrinkles)
  • liposuction
  • neck lift
  • nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
  • Retin A treatment

Body Contouring Following Weight-Loss Surgery

Patients who have experienced significant weight loss following bariatric surgery-including gastric bypass, gastric banding, or other procedures-typically have areas of undesirable excess skin, particularly in the abdomen, breasts, arms and thighs. Through body contouring procedures, our plastic and reconstructive surgeons can safely and effectively reshape the body where excess skin remains. Among the procedures offered are:

  • tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
  • arm lift (brachioplasty)
  • breast lift (mastopexy)
  • medial thigh lift (thighplasty)
  • lower body lift
  • liposuction (body fat removal)
  • face lift (rhytidectomy)
  • gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction)
