Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons will correct body changes caused by cancer treatment

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Offering head-to-toe solutions to restore physical appearance and function in any part of the body.

Cancer and its treatment may leave you with scars or deficits that affect your physical, emotional, functional, and social health and well-being. To repair and restore tissue and structures, plastic and reconstructive surgeons use advanced techniques and microsurgery to transfer skin, fat, muscle, bone, and other tissue, and reestablish blood flow and nerve function to repaired areas.

We aim to fix what cancer took away. We provide highly specialized procedures to promote your healing, restore your function and appearance, improve scar deformities, eliminate the need for prostheses and improve your quality of life.

Roswell Park’s Plastic & Reconstructive surgeons can help you no matter where you had your cancer surgery — or when. Contact us today for a consultation.
