Faculty surgeons of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of the Emory University School of Medicine have consistently been at the forefront of innovation and development in the field, and provide surgical services through Emory Healthcare, the largest and most comprehensive health system in Georgia.

Procedures performed include abdominal wall reconstruction; breast reconstruction (especially immediately after mastectomy); breast lifts, augmentation, and reduction; correction of craniofacial and congenital abnormalities; body contouring; free tissue transfer; head and neck reconstruction; oculoplastic surgery; microsurgery; reconstruction following surgery for skin cancer; scar revisions; surgery of the hand and upper extremities; and thoracic reconstruction.

Surgical and reconstructive procedures are provided through Emory Healthcare's plastic and reconstructive surgery service. The entire spectrum of aesthetic surgical and non-surgical services are offered at Emory Aesthetic Center, where our plastic surgeons collaborate with Emory dermatologists, otolaryngologists, ophthalmologists, and vascular surgeons.

Additionally, several of our plastic surgery faculty are affiliated with the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia's first and only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, placing it in the top one percent of all cancer centers in the United States. Our faculty collaborate with a variety of surgical specialists at Winship, typically performing the reconstructive portions of a broad range of procedures and treatment options for cancer patients.
