Body Reconstruction in Orange County, CA
Reconstructive surgery can restore function and natural appearance to body parts that have been disfigured by injury or illness or that are malformed due to birth defects. By restoring function and an attractive and natural-looking appearance, body reconstruction can boost a person’s self-esteem and enable them to enjoy life more fully, without being self-conscious about their appearance or abilities.
The surgeons at UCI Plastic Surgery have extensive experience in these highly specialized procedures. They have training and expertise in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, so their focus is on both function and appearance. They use cutting-edge technology and techniques such as microvascular surgery and free tissue transfer to achieve superior results. They work with you to design a treatment plan customized to your needs.
Burn reconstruction surgery improves the appearance of damaged skin for burn survivors and can help restore function to injured areas. A reconstructive surgeon may use tissue from other parts of the body to help repair scar tissue and rebuild delicate features. When large burn scars affect the adjacent muscles and tendons, reconstructive surgery can help restore movement and function. As one of the nation’s first burn facilities, the UCI Plastic Surgery Regional Burn Center encourages the physical and emotional healing of each patient.
Hand surgery can improve the appearance and function of hands affected by injury, debilitating disorder, or birth defects. Hand surgery can treat conditions such as carpal tunnel and rheumatoid arthritis to restore normal movement and reduce pain. Reconstructive hand surgery can make hands more functional and improve their appearance, correcting malformation from birth defects, injury, or trauma — even in severe cases.

This multidisciplinary approach can restore function, even in severe cases, and salvage limbs that might otherwise be a lost cause. Lower extremity reconstruction may be necessary when large wounds from injury, infection, or tumor removal expose major structures such as bones, joints, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels.
