Plastic Surgery

MUSC Health's Plastic Surgery Center offers the region's largest variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures.  MUSC Health Plastic Surgeons specialize in the latest techniques requiring the most advanced skill sets.  From minor procedures, such as laser therapy and liposculpture, to advanced reconstructive procedures, including microsurgery, our patients have access to expertise and focused care. 

MUSC Health Plastic Surgeons are highly proficient in a comprehensive array of cosmetic procedures. Patients also enjoy the benefits of building relationships with the same surgeons over time and having all of their cosmetic needs met in one location.

Why MUSC Health?

MUSC Health’s Plastic Surgery Division is extraordinary in many ways:

  • MUSC Health Plastic Surgeons participate in ongoing research programs to expand the depth of plastic surgery knowledge throughout the nation and continually improve techniques.
  • MUSC has the only plastic surgery residency program in the South Carolina and one of only 89 in the nation.
  • Plastic Surgery Resident Education insures the latest treatments and techniques.
  • MUSC Health Plastic Surgeons treat adult and pediatric patients.

MUSC Health Plastic Surgeons are experts in innovative microsurgery techniques, such as DIEP, a new type of muscle-sparing breast reconstruction.  These advanced reconstruction techniques require a high level of skill, using the patient’s own tissue to create “flaps.”  The flaps consist of skin, muscle or bone with accompanying blood vessels to nourish the reconstructed area of the body.  Flaps can be taken from several areas of the body, including the lower abdomen (as in the DIEP flap).  MUSC Health plastic surgeons rely on their extensive knowledge of vascular anatomy to prepare the flaps for use in surgery.

Also, the distinguished plastic surgeons with the MUSC Health Advanced Migraine Surgery Program have helped to pioneer and refine the revolutionary surgical techniques that are used to effectively treat migraine headaches. Our doctors and surgeons have the specific expertise required to surgically treat migraine headaches. As a result of their unique ability to utilize their well-known talents and expertise in plastic surgery, nerve surgery, facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, and microsurgery, they are the ideal surgeons to provide you with the long-term relief from your migraine headaches.

In addition to knowledge, being experienced in such complex operations requires delicate technique.  These abilities enhance MUSC Health Plastic Surgeons’ overall skills, enabling them to excel in all types of cosmetic surgery, including cosmetic surgery on the face, arms, legs and trunk.
