Reconstructive surgery differs from cosmetic surgery because it is medically indicated. It is commonly performed to treat areas of the body impacted by trauma, congenital and developmental abnormalities, or disease. Reconstruction often has both functional and aesthetic benefits.
If you have an issue that limits your mobility, causes chronic pain or affects your quality of life, reconstructive surgery may be able to help. Contact reconstructive surgeon Dr. Joseph Khouri at 440-446-8600 to learn about your options. He proudly serves Cleveland and nearby areas of Ohio.
Some women who have had breast cancer surgery choose to have an additional procedure known as breast reconstruction. Dr. Khouri performs breast reconstruction for women who are looking to restore a near normal breast shape and appearance after mastectomy or lumpectomy.
Implant-based reconstruction is the leading technique. This approach uses saline or silicone breast implants to rebuild the breast mound after surgery. It can be customized to meet the unique needs and preferences of the individual.
