Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Make a positive life change with plastic and reconstructive surgery at Wayne UNC Health Care. You’ll receive the same high-quality, personalized care that you’d expect in a big city—but close to your home.
What is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery includes:
- Cosmetic treatment – Procedures you choose to have to reshape healthy tissue or body parts to make them look better
- Reconstructive procedures – Treatment you need to restore part of your body’s look, function, and feel after an injury, surgery or birth defect
During your free initial consultation, tell your plastic surgeon about your appearance goals. You’ll learn what surgical or nonsurgical treatments may benefit you and explore the advantages of each option. Your surgeon will help you set realistic expectations and feel confident about the quality and safety of the treatment.
After you decide to pursue a certain procedure, we may schedule more appointments to plan successful treatment. Many plastic surgeries at Wayne UNC are outpatient, meaning you go home the same day. Recovery ranges from no down time to several months, depending on the procedure.
