Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery

UNM Health System’s plastic surgeons emphasize the importance of treating the patient as a whole. Whether dealing with disfigurements, scarring as a result of trauma or cancer treatment, or performing cosmetic procedures to enhance and re-contour the body and face, our plastic surgeons take into consideration both the physical and emotional well-being of you, our patient.

We offer three locations to meet your plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery needs, all in safe and inviting environments that are staffed by expert and experienced surgeons.

Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a specialty that adopts sound surgical principles to the unique needs of the individual patient by remolding and reshaping tissue. Devoted to the restoration or creation of the best function of a part of the body with a superior aesthetic appearance, plastic surgery is broad in scope and is not limited to a given organ system, region of the body or age group.

At any one of our three convenient locations, patients can benefit from a large number of cosmetic procedures including:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lift
  • Lip augmentation
  • Dermabrasion (removing superficial layers of skin)
  • Scar revisions
  • Abdominoplasty
  • Eyelid lift
  • Skin cancer reconstruction
  • Otoplasty (surgical and non-surgical procedures of the external ear)
  • Fat grafting
  • Facelift
  • Browlift
  • Liposuction
  • Botox and Dysport injections and other procedures for facial wrinkles
  • Injectable fillers like Restalyne and Sculptra

Our Vein & Cosmetic Center also offers a number of vascular treatments for conditions like spider veins, varicose veins and vascular lesions.

You will always receive professional care from a surgeon. Our surgeons are qualified to address a full range of concerns, from head to toe. Whether you are seeking anti-aging treatments or want to enhance your appearance with cosmetic surgery, we can help you achieve the results you desire. No referrals are needed, so contact us today to schedule a personal consultation with one of our surgeons in Albuquerque!
