Reconstructive Surgery Dallas
Reconstructive surgery is something people from all walks of life choose whenever they want to feel better about themselves after an injury or extended illness. Plano and Frisco area patients have gotten their lives back on track after undergoing reconstructive surgery by board-certified plastic surgeon Charles A. Wallace, M.D.
What is Reconstructive Surgery?
Reconstructive surgery is a broad term used to describe any procedure designed to rebuild or reconstruct certain body parts or facial features. Many people choose reconstructive surgery to correct deformities caused by birth defects, injuries or diseases, such as cancer. Reconstructive surgery doesn’t only affect how an individual looks, but also how well that person functions. For example, hand reconstructive surgery can allow people to perform everyday tasks that they might not be able to do otherwise.

Is Reconstructive Surgery Right for Me?
While reconstructive surgery can go a long way toward helping you restore your appearance, it cannot correct all deformities. For this reason, you should undergo a consultation with Dr. Wallace to discuss your surgery goals and find out if there is a procedure available that will help you reach them.
Elements of Reconstructive Surgery
Each procedure is different and customized for each patient. As such, a procedure may involve one or more of the following elements:
- Tightening, trimming and toning certain body parts
- Augmenting areas through the use of implants, fat or fillers
- Altering bone structure
- Skin grafting/scar revision
During your consultation, Dr. Wallace will discuss the various elements needed to give you the look you desire.
