Plastic and reconstructive surgery refers to the evaluation and treatment to correct functional impairments caused by trauma or congenital abnormalities. Plastic surgery can be performed to approximate a normal appearance, for example, a breast reconstruction following a mastectomy or skin grafting following burns.
Plastic and reconstructive surgery is not cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is performed for non-therapeutic purposes and no benefit is paid by Union Health.
