Benefits of Reconstructive Surgery
Long after wounds have healed, the effects of an injury linger whenever someone has become disfigured. Reconstructive surgery allows for complete healing by restoring an individual to his or her former glory. This in turn results in greater self-confidence and, for many South Jersey patients, the freedom to enjoy life again. Other benefits include the following:
- Procedures tailored to meet each person’s needs
- Procedures covered by medical insurance in many cases
How Is Reconstructive Surgery Performed?
The surgery varies based on the exact procedure(s) needed. Dr. Sood will discuss the particulars with you during your consultation.
Preparing for Reconstructive Surgery
The manner in which you prepare for surgery will also vary based upon the type of procedure you are undergoing. You will be provided with pre-operative instructions prior to your appointment.
Recovery from Reconstructive Surgery
Some surgeries may require you to take time off from work or strictly limit your activities for several weeks afterward.

Dr. Sood will also review these instructions with you prior to releasing you from care to ensure you fully understand them.
How Much Does Reconstructive Surgery Cost?
Cost will depend on which surgery or surgeries you need. Each one is priced differently, and you will be given a breakdown of the cost during your initial consultation.
