Refreshing health for faces and bodies
Once thought to be the exclusive privilege of movie stars and the very wealthy, facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery is now available to just about everyone, at a fraction of the high costs so common just a few years ago, and sometimes even covered all or in part by your health insurance.
At St. Joseph Mercy Oakland we have an elite team of doctors and surgeons who specialize in guiding you through the entire plastic and reconstructive surgical process, from the earliest consultations, through to a safe and painless recovery.
Reconstructive surgery can correct congenital or acquired physical defects such as:
- Acne scarring.
- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy.
- Breast reduction.
- Scar removal.
- Facial fractures and trauma.
- Skin cancer treatment.
- Cleft palate.
- Ear reconstruction.

All SJMO plastic and reconstructive surgeons are board-certified in otolaryngology, the surgical specialty of treating the head and neck.
