Plastic Surgery

The decision to have cosmetic or reconstructive surgery to enhance your appearance or improve function is a very personal one. You want a surgeon who has both the technical skills you need and the artistic touch you want. Temple plastic surgeons offers both.

Our surgeons are experienced in a wide range of procedures that can improve your appearance or restore function after an injury or disease. In each case, we take the time to listen and get to know exactly what you wish to achieve. We then carefully explain your options and work with you to achieve your desired results.

Cosmetic Surgery to Enhance Your Appearance

Whether you need an injection to smooth out wrinkles or a full “mommy makeover,” our plastic surgeons will create a personalized treatment plan designed to give you the best possible results. Cosmetic procedures offered at Temple include:

  • Breast augmentation, reduction and lifts

  • Mommy makeovers (tummy tuck and breast enhancement)

  • Body contouring and body lift

Reconstructive Surgery to Restore Function & Appearance

Plastic surgery is more than breast enhancements and tummy tucks. Temple plastic surgeons have years of experience reconstructing areas of the face or body that have been damaged by injury, illness or deformity.

The primary goal of a reconstructive procedure is to restore function and physical appearance. No matter how your body has changed, plastic surgeons can help to enhance your appearance, mobility and comfort.

Reconstructive procedures offered at Temple include:

  • Breast reconstruction after breast cancer

  • Head and neck reconstruction after cancer

  • Upper and lower extremity reconstruction

  • Hand surgery to restore function

  • Facial fracture repair

  • Orthognathic (jaw) surgery

  • Wound and burn care, including skin grafts or flaps

  • Repair of congenital anomalies (problems you are born with)

  • Skin cancer surgery

  • Scar revision

  • Abdominal wall reconstruction

Featured Services for Complex Conditions 

Temple plastic surgeons specializes in several areas, including:

  • Craniofacial surgery: Using the latest techniques available, our surgeons can correct injuries, asymmetries, or deformities in the face or head with the goal of improving appearance, form and function.

  • Microsurgery: This type of specialized surgery is performed using microscopes in the operating room and allows for more precision during surgery. It is an approach that is often used to repair delicate structures, including blood vessels and nerves, and can be used for complex types of reconstruction.

  • Hand/upper extremity/peripheral nerve surgery: Broken bones and injured nerves or tendons in the hands, wrists, forearms or shoulders may require surgery to restore sensation, regain motor function or to reduce pain. Our plastic surgeons also treat hand and wrist injuries due to overuse, arthritis, and nerve compression.

  • Orthognatic surgery: Our plastic surgeons work with specialists at Temple’s Kornberg School of Dentistry to perform corrective surgery to straighten or realign the jaws.

  • Gender confirmation surgery: Services offered by our plastic surgeons include “top” surgery, “bottom” surgery, vaginoplasty, phalloplasty and facial feminization.
