What is Reconstructive Surgery?
Reconstructive surgery is used to treat areas of the body that have been affected by trauma, congenital defect, an abnormality, infection, disease of some sort, or a tumor. Reconstruction is performed in order to improve the functionality and appearance of different structures of the body. The goal of reconstructive surgery is to improve both the physical and emotional well being of the patient.
What are the Benefits of Reconstructive Surgery?
Reconstructive surgery can be beneficial both physically and mentally. Physically the damaged area is restored as best as possible to its preinjury state. This hopefully will be able to improve both the function and appearance of the patient. Mentally you may feel more confident and less conscious about your appearance and what others are seeing when they look at you. Reconstructive surgery has been shown time and time again to improve the overall quality of life for patients.

- Aside from the areas that need reconstructed, the individual should be healthy physically and mentally
