Plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient’s overall appearance. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance because it is elective.

Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.

There are a number of “gray areas” in coverage for plastic surgery that sometimes require special consideration by an insurance carrier. These areas usually involve surgical operations, which may be reconstructive or cosmetic, depending on each patient’s situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) – a procedure normally performed to achieve cosmetic improvement – may be covered if the eyelids are drooping severely and obscuring a patient’s vision.


Face, breast, body, and reconstruction procedures offer significant benefits, enhancing your appearance and functional aspects. From facial rejuvenation to body contouring and critical reconstruction, these surgical options aim to align your physical self with your personal vision, contributing to your overall well-being and satisfaction.

Minimally Invasive

Minimally invasive procedures like Botox® injections, chemical peels, and laser treatments offer a way to refresh your look without surgery. They can smooth wrinkles, clear your skin, and even remove unwanted hair with minimal downtime. These treatments are quick ways to enhance your appearance.

Consultation Process

The consultation process is a fundamental step in your plastic surgery journey. We listen to your goals during this initial meeting and assess your needs. We discuss potential procedures and realistic outcomes and address any questions to ensure you have a clear understanding of what to expect. It’s also a time for you to share your medical history, including any previous surgeries or health conditions, to tailor a treatment plan that is both safe and effective for you.

Our goal is to create a plan that meets your aesthetic goals and aligns with your health requirements. By working closely with you, we aim to ensure that you feel supported and confident in the decisions made about your care.
