Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (Plastic Cosmetic & Reconstructive Procedures)

At the Advanced Center for Orthopedics and Plastic Surgery, our specialty-trained surgeon, Dr.Taylor, specializes in performing an array of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, ranging from facial trauma reconstruction and extremity reconstruction to breast augmentation and deformity correction.

Cosmetic plastic surgery entails reshaping normal structures of the body in order to enhance appearance and self-worth, and can be done either surgically or nonsurgically, depending on the particular procedure. Reconstructive surgery involves restoring irregular structures of the body, caused by inherited defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, illness, tumors, or disease. Typically, a surgeon performs cosmetic and reconstructive procedures by utilizing minimally invasive techniques and the latest technology to carefully incise through muscles, cartilage, tissue, or tendons; however, it depends on the surgeon and the circumstances.

  • Facial Trauma Reconstruction

Most cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries are major surgical procedures that require the patient to be under general anesthesia. This means you won’t be awake for your surgery and will therefore be comfortable and feel no pain. Because cosmetic and reconstructive procedures typically involve cutting through and reshaping the soft tissues and cartilage in the body, the patient usually has to undergo an extensive recuperations process involving follow-up care and physical therapy that may last anywhere from several weeks to numerous months, depending on the individual situation and the surgeon views as best.
