Newport Beach reconstructive surgery provider Dr. Brandon Richland

Dr. Richland met us at the emergency room (straight from the airport) after our son had a surfing injury to the face. He was calm and professional when we were not. The injury has healed beautifully with no scar. He was also able to communicate with a teenager as to self-care for the wound and motivated our son to facilitate his own healing and scar minimizing.

Reconstructive Surgery FAQs

While both types of procedures can enhance a person’s appearance, cosmetic surgery refers to treatments that are intended for purely aesthetic purposes. On the other hand, reconstructive surgery is considered medically necessary, repairing an abnormality or functional deficiency.

Reconstructive surgery involves the same risks as any surgical procedure, including infection, bleeding, blood clots, problems with healing, and complications from anesthesia.

Depending on the details of your procedure, you may be able to return to your regular activities immediately after your procedure, or your recovery may take weeks or even months.

In some instances, yes. However, most insurance providers have stringent requirements on what is considered a “medically necessary” treatment and therefore may not cover the reconstructive surgery in some situations. Dr. Richland will be able to provide more information to your specific case in a consultation.

While many reconstructive surgeries can be performed as an outpatient procedure, more extensive surgeries may require you to stay for observation.
