Reconstructive plastic surgery is a powerful resource to help you, such after breast cancer or a skin cancer resection, feel whole again and back to your "normal" self .
No matter your reason, we'll work with you to find the best solution to reach your goals.
Why Choose Luminis Health for Plastic Surgery
At Luminis Health Plastic Surgery, you receive:
- The highest standard of care.
- A full range of solutions for your situation.
- A team committed to you.
Our plastic surgeons work closely with breast surgeons, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists and other health care professionals. This level of collaboration is not common in highly specialized care. As a result, you get holistic, coordinated care close to home.
Plus, that care doesn't stop once your surgery is complete. We want to give you the tools you need to lead a healthy and active life.
A Patient-Centered Approach to Cosmetic Surgery
No two patients are alike, and our highly trained team recognizes that everyone deserves individualized care. That's why we look at more than your medical chart when creating a treatment plan.
Instead of thinking of you as a patient, we like to consider you a partner in health. We might be the experts in plastic surgery, but you're the expert in you.
At Luminis Health Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of cosmetic procedures for people of all ages, body types and skin types. These include:
- Nonsurgical procedures, like dermal fillers, BOTOX and facial resurfacing.
- Surgical procedures, like breast reduction, breast augmentation and body contouring.
- Reconstructive procedures, including breast reconstruction, skin cancer reconstruction and scar revisions. We also do keloid excisions and treat pressure wounds.
