Reconstructive surgery can help repair parts of the body. There are procedures to correct damage caused by injuries, birth defects, or disfigurement.
Breast reconstruction or reduction is for women who have undergone a mastectomy or for women who have abnormally large breasts that cause back problems or related health issues. There is a separate breast reduction for men. Surgeries are available for people affected by any number of maladies, including tumors, webbed toes or fingers or extra fingers or toes. People can also receive treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
For individuals with severe burns or cuts, skin grafts or other reconstructive techniques are available. Microsurgery or flap procedures are procedures that replace parts of the body affected by injury or disease, such as cancer. Reconstructive surgery corrects facial defects such as cleft lip, breathing problems, or chronic infections.
Most insurance carriers do cover reconstructive surgery.
