A physical complication from an illness, accident or simply being unsatisfied with something about your own body can have a dramatic impact on quality of life. The board certified physicians at SSM Health offer reconstructive surgery options focused on making you feel whole again, and achieve a different appearance. Most health insurance policies do cover reconstructive surgery, although the amount could vary depending on the procedure.
Choosing to have surgery is a big decision. Our trusted plastic surgeons are dedicated to helping you achieve the best results. It’s important to communicate your expectations, goals and motivation for surgery with your SSM Health plastic surgeon. This lets you work together in determining whether plastic surgery is the right choice for you and how to best achieve those goals.

What to Expect from SSM Health
Our commitment to your well-being and self-image begins with an initial consultation and continues on after your surgery, with comprehensive post-operative care.
Before your first appointment, it’s helpful to bring copies of any previously completed medical records or imaging studies (scans, X-rays, etc.). These may prove useful depending on what type of surgery you are interested in. It is also beneficial to prepare a list of questions you have and to bring a family member or trusted friend to your initial consultation.
