Plastic and reconstructive surgery
Benefit from the skilled care of the licensed plastic and reconstructive surgeons on staff at Montage Health’s Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.
Reconstructive treatment may help if an injury, illness, or congenital (present at birth) condition affects how a body part looks or works. Reconstructive procedures include:
- Breast reduction – Decreases breast size to address discomfort
- Breast reconstruction – Restores breast look and shape after breast cancer
- Burn or laceration (cut) repair – Treats and mends wounds, sometimes using skin grafts
- Hand surgery – Restores abilities and appearance of the delicate parts that make up the fingers and hands
- Scar revision – Improves how a scar looks
- Septoplasty – Corrects a deviated nasal septum to improve breathing
Cosmetic surgery enhances the appearance of an area on the body. It may improve your body image or self-esteem if you’re bothered by a body part or after major physical changes, such as pregnancy or weight loss.
- Breast augmentation – Increases breast size or changes breast shape by placing a breast implant under the chest muscles or breast tissue
- Breast lift, or mastopexy – Removes extra skin and tightens the surrounding area to raise and reshape the breasts

Cosmetic surgery cost
Cosmetic procedures are elective, meaning that they aren’t medically needed. Most insurance plans don’t cover cosmetic treatments, which means you’ll be responsible for the cost.
Minimally invasive and laser procedures
Your doctor will use the least invasive techniques to perform your procedure whenever possible. Using a less invasive approach likely means you’ll have a faster recovery.
