Reconstructive versus cosmetic. We do both.
Reconstructive surgery is different than cosmetic surgery, which is typically done to improve someone's appearance or self-image. Reconstructive surgery, on the other hand, is intended to repair diseased or damaged parts of the body, like surgery to correct birth defects or disfigurement.
"We can do incredible things to improve function and appearance for people who are living with a serious defect or abnormality," explains Dr. Gabriel. "Today's technology and techniques make it possible to do things that were not an option just 10 years ago."
