Keith Denkler M.D. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Plastic surgery is a specialty that seeks to improve physical function, minimize disfigurement from accidents or birth defects, or reshape bodily features to improve an individual's appearance. The word plastic, derived from the Greek word Plastikos, meaning to create form.
Plastic surgical procedures can improve appearance and renew self-confidence. The term Cosmetic Surgery is frequently used inter-changeably with the term Plastic Surgery when the purpose is aesthetic improvement. Consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon is the first step an individual should take when considering cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery.
