Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Life is full of changes, and few are noticed as much as those to our appearance, whether it be from aging, accident, illness or birth defect. The plastic surgeons with University of Mississippi Medical Center are experts in reconstructive and aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery.

The word "plastic" in plastic surgery is derived from the ancient Greek word plastikos, which means "to mold or give form." Our board-certified surgeons are nationally recognized for their use of state-of-the-art, innovative plastic surgical procedures. The UMMC plastic surgery care team includes specially trained nurses, technicians and administrative assistants committed to helping our patients receive the best possible care.

Because our physicians also serve as faculty members at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, patients have the added benefit of knowing they are receiving care from experts with the most up-to-date knowledge and training. The latest surgical and non-surgical techniques are used to improve outcomes and shorten recovery times.

A physician's referral is not necessary for a consultation with one of our skilled surgeons.
