Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery


UC San Diego Health offers the latest expertise in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. If you are not satisfied with your looks, or have a medical condition or injury that has altered your function or appearance, plastic surgery can help you look and feel better. Our team of plastic surgeons takes time to listen, ask questions and work with you to create a treatment plan that is effective, healthy and meets your expectations.

We collaborate in a multidisciplinary atmosphere and provide the level of expertise offered by San Diego's only academic health system. That means our board-certified plastic surgeons give you the highest level of care with advanced surgical and nonsurgical treatments, specialized microsurgery techniques, and the newest technologies in the field.

Our team works with other specialists — such as surgical oncologists, dermatologists, bariatric and orthopedic surgeons — to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care.

We work with our colleagues at Rady Children's Hospital San Diego to provide care for adolescents who are transitioning from pediatric to adult care for conditions that need ongoing surgery, treatment and monitoring. This may include congenital abnormalities and craniofacial disorders including cleft lip and palate.
