Reconstructive Surgery in Philadelphia, PA
Not all cosmetic surgeries are performed to reduce signs of aging. Many of our patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania desire reconstructive surgery for one reason or another, which can be skillfully performed by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Raymond D. Jean.
What is Reconstructive Surgery?
A reconstructive surgical procedure is one that restores a person’s own natural appearance. It is most often used to reconstruct certain areas of the face or body after an accident, illness, trauma, or birth defect has left a person disfigured. Reconstructive surgery is highly complex and uniquely tailored to each individual.
Our Philadelphia patients can take advantage of the following reconstructive procedures:
Some disfigurements are occasionally due to lacerations or deep cuts on the face or body. Lacerations require immediate attention to prevent infection and protect delicate nerves, tendons, and other tissues. If you have suffered any type of laceration, please contact us for emergency care right away.
Am I a Good Candidate for Reconstructive Surgery?
You are the only one who knows how your anomaly affects you. As such, this is a personal decision that you alone are qualified to make. Our goal here at Main Line Plastic Surgery is to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. *We will never try to pressure you into having a procedure you are not comfortable with or make you feel like less of a person if you choose to live with your deformity.
Planning your Reconstructive Surgery
Some reconstructive surgeries, such as breast reconstruction, could require multiple operations. If so, we will develop a procedural timeline based on your desired results, keeping any treatments required by your primary care physician in mind.
How is Reconstructive Surgery Performed?
Scar treatment is performed very differently than other more invasive procedures such as breast or facial reconstruction. Although it isn’t possible to provide exact details here, more about your particular surgery will be discussed during the consultation phase.
How Much Does Reconstructive Surgery Cost in Philadelphia?
Cosmetic procedures such as our reconstructive surgeries are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing.
