Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery is intended to correct dysfunctional areas of the body and is reconstructive in nature. This is different from cosmetic surgery, which is a specialty entirely dedicated to the primary goal of enhancing a person’s appearance with various procedures through which improve aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion. Many plastic surgeons obtain further training in cosmetic surgery and offer both services, so cosmetic surgery is often confused for the plastics specialty.
Quality First Urgent Care provides reconstructive plastic surgery services secondary to trauma, which is essential in restoring normal function and appearance of defects. Presently, the only cosmetic procedure offered is ear lobe repair.
