Reconstructive Surgery

We restore, rebuild, and make whole those parts which nature hath given but which fortune has taken away not so much that it may delight the eye but that it might buoy up the spirit and help the mind of the afflicted.

~ Gaspare Tagliocozzi, The Italian Father of Plastic Surgery

The quotation above eloquently summarizes the goal of reconstructive surgery, which Dr. Kalus prefers to think of as “restorative” rather than “reconstructive”.

Reconstructive plastic surgery differs somewhat from cosmetic surgery because its goal is to restore natural appearance and function to children and adults who have abnormal features caused by trauma, heredity, or disease. Modern reconstructive technology available at Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas in South Carolina allows Dr. Kalus to achieve incredible results even in the most difficult cases. Patients come to Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas from throughout South Carolina and North Carolina for reconstructive plastic surgery procedures to repair skin cancer damage, correct cleft lip and palate, and restore devastating scarring and loss of function from severe burns.

Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas offers a range of reconstructive procedures. Although not comprehensive, the list below outlines reconstructive surgery issues addressed by our practice. Information regarding these services is included, but for an in-depth consultation for these or any reconstructive or cosmetic surgery options, please contact our South Carolina plastic surgery center today.
