A Mayo physician discusses a potential procedure with a patient.

Plastic surgery is a broad field that includes not only cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, but also surgical repair of congenital deformities such as cleft lip and palate, post-surgical reconstruction such as breast and head-and-neck defects, and correction of post-traumatic defects.

At Mayo Clinic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is staffed by 19 plastic surgeons across three campuses, with specialized training and skills in one or more of a wide range of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery services including aesthetic plastic surgery, breast surgery, reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, facial reconstructive surgery, reconstructive microsurgery, pediatric plastic surgery, laser surgery, and hand surgery.

Four plastic surgeons practicing at Mayo Clinic in Florida, 12 in Minnesota and four in Arizona work closely with physicians from other specialties to offer patients comprehensive medical care to meet their reconstructive and cosmetic surgical needs. Surgeons in Dermatology, Otorhinolaryngology (ENT)/Head and Neck Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery also have training and expertise in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.
