Plastic & reconstructive surgery

Plastic surgery changes a person’s appearance.

Reconstructive surgery reshapes or rebuilds body structures affected by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, injury, infection, disease or tumors to improve function and appearance.

At multiple UCHealth facilities along the Colorado Front Range, you’ll find dedicated specialists with the extensive experience, skill and training to undertake an array of surgical procedures that range from the simple to the complex. Many of these delicate operations are performed nowhere else in the Rocky Mountain region.
