Plastic Surgery

Are you looking for a plastic surgeon in San Diego?

Scripps Affiliated Medical Groups has a list of doctors specializing in all aspects of plastic surgery, including reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. Plastic surgeons are specially trained and well-versed in the latest surgical as well as non-surgical techniques and medical advances.

Reconstructive surgery is performed to improve undesired or abnormal parts of the body, which may have been caused by developmental abnormalities, congenital defects, trauma, infection, or disease. Some examples of reconstructive procedures include skin cancer removal, breast reconstruction or reduction, cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, scar revision, tissue expansion, and hand surgery.

Cosmetic plastic surgery includes both surgical and nonsurgical procedures that modify specific areas of the body with the purpose of improving physical appearance, and perhaps self-esteem. Because cosmetic surgery is entirely elective, it is unlikely to be covered by health insurance. Some examples of cosmetic plastic surgery include breast implant surgery (breast augmentation), tummy tuck, arm lift, buttock augmentation, liposuction, facelift surgery, brow lift, spider vein treatment, skin resurfacing using lasers and chemical peels, hair replacement, and Botox injections.
