Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
Reconstructive plastic surgery can change patients’ lives by correcting or restoring both form and function. Some procedures correct birth defects like cleft lip or cleft palate, while others aim to reconstruct features scarred by tragic accidents and illnesses or disfigured by domestic violence.
