Reconstructive Procedures/Trauma Surgery:
Reconstructive surgery is one of the cornerstones of CRS Plastic Surgery, whether it’s breast reconstruction, hand reconstruction, scar revision, or skin lesion treatment, our surgeons are experts in this field. Physical deformities can be the result of cancer, trauma, or genetic and can complicate both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the body.
Our team here at CRS Plastic Surgery understands the physical and emotional suffering one encounters when they have lost physical attributes due to traumatic injury, congenital deformity, or cancer. The good news, however, is that it is possible to restore function and improve your appearance through an array of surgical reconstructive procedures. Both of our surgeons have advanced fellowship training in reconstructive surgery, which allows them to excel in some of the most complex fields of reconstructive surgery, ranging from hand replantation to severe facial traumatic injuries. We are committed to restoring what you have lost so that you can attain improved function and a better appearance with natural appearing results.

Burn and Wound Care:
Plastic and reconstructive surgeons at CRS Plastic Surgery are known throughout the community for their successes in procedures designed to restore function and appearance in victims of traumatic burn injury. Our goals are to help patients who require limb reattachment, treatment for animal attacks, and reconstructive surgery for conditions resulting from disease, tumors, infection, and other causes.
Peripheral Nerve Surgery
The peripheral nervous system consists of the motor and sensory nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nerves provide input to all the facial muscles, the muscles of the upper extremity, as well as the lower extremity. It also provides sensory perception for the entire body. Many people experience pain or numbness due to sensory nerve injuries. Weakness or paralysis can be caused by motor nerve injuries. Patients who experience pain following other types of surgeries such as a hernia repair or a knee replacement can often be helped by one of our surgeons.
At CRS Plastic Surgery, our plastic and reconstructive surgeons are specialty-trained in a complex field of surgery focusing on repairing small blood vessels and restoring function to the hand. Our surgeons can successfully treat those who have suffered from loss of limbs or fingers, damage to the blood vessels, trauma and crush injuries, nerve damage, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other conditions.
Innovative maxillofacial surgery procedures can help those who suffer from aesthetic and functional problems affecting the face and neck area. Patients who have experienced injury, congenital deformity, and disease can achieve cosmetic improvement in the facial area that can dramatically increase their self-confidence about the way they look.
Microvascular surgery is often used in replantation surgery and hand reconstruction procedures, requiring reconstruction of arteries and veins. Procedures requiring microvascular surgery are utilized in reconstruction procedures using techniques that rely on using the patient’s own blood supply for tissue and bone replantation.
Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery
Patients who are unhappy with the results of a rhinoplasty (nose surgery) procedure performed elsewhere may consider rhinoplasty revision surgery. Rhinoplasty revision can correct aesthetic or functional problems caused, or not addressed, in a previous nose surgery.
Our plastic surgeons at CRS Plastic Surgery can significantly diminish the signs of scarring and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Advanced methods in treating a variety of scar types caused by burns, injuries, and previous surgery can do wonders for reducing the noticeability of scarring.
Skin and Bone Grafting
Skin grafting involves taking healthy skin from another area of your body to help close a severe wound. Bone grafting is a procedure designed to replace missing bones with substitutes made from natural, synthetic, or artificial materials. These procedures can be highly beneficial to those who have suffered traumatic injury or disease that has caused skin or bone loss.
Skin Lesions Treatment
Plastic surgeons at CRS Plastic Surgery work with skilled dermatologists to evaluate skin lesions (superficial skin growths) and determine if they may be a sign of more serious health issues. Treatment plans can be developed for those with either benign or malignant skin growths that can help patients avoid further problems and improve their aesthetic appearance.
