Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

UCR Health’s plastic surgeons are fellowship trained and reconstruct congenital anomalies, post-traumatic injuries, and defects resulting from cancer ablative surgery, delivering superior results to help you lead a more confident life.

Trauma, cancer, and congenital defects can be both physically and emotionally scarring, leaving you with disfigurement and/or disability. Reconstructive plastic surgery has the potential to restore both form and function, making you feel whole again and lead a more confident life. If you have a congenital defect, or have experienced trauma, infection, or malignancy that has compromised your appearance or your ability to function, consider seeing the surgeons at UCR Health.

Our physicians are fellowship trained and work skillfully in a state-of-the-art, safe and comfortable environment. Our physicians partner with the best community hospitals and serve patients in Riverside and Orange Counties.
