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.

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 (called peripheral nerve 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.

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