About Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a specialty which adapts sound surgical principles to the unique needs of the individual patient by remolding and reshaping tissue. Devoted to the restoration or creation of the best function of a part of the body with a superior aesthetic appearance, plastic surgery is broad in scope and is not limited to a given organ system, region of the body or age group.

Plastic surgeons emphasize the importance of treating the patient as a whole. Whether dealing with disfigurements or scarring as a result of trauma or cancer treatment, or performing cosmetic procedures to enhance and recontour the body and face, plastic surgeons take into consideration both the physical and emotional well-being of the patient.

At UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center, we are committed to helping you look and feel your best by offering the following reconstructive and cosmetic procedures:

  • Breast Reconstruction
  • Craniofacial Reconstruction – Craniosynostosis and Cleft Lip & Palate
