The Division of Plastic Surgery provides both reconstructive and cosmetic services to patients in northeast Tennessee, southwest Virginia, and western North Carolina. We work closely with other surgeons and specialists to care for the full spectrum of traumatic injuries, chronic wounds, hand injuries, and in the reconstruction of defects or other problems related to cancer therapy.
Aesthetic (also called cosmetic) surgery and procedures are also available, including cosmetic breast surgery augmentation (lift, reduction), facial procedures (peels, facelift, necklift, browlift), and trunk procedures (abdominoplasty, liposuction).
