Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Stony Brook’s plastic surgeons are board certified and specially trained to perform both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery (see their profile pages for their board certifications). Our multidisciplinary team includes an oral and maxillofacial surgeon with expertise in face and mouth cancer/reconstructive surgery.

At our Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center in East Setauket and at our Bellavie MedSpa in Centereach, our specialists offer the entire spectrum of cosmetic and aesthetic procedures including non-invasive, minimally invasive, moderately invasive, and full surgical treatments.

Our plastic surgeons use not only conventional surgical approaches, but also the latest microsurgical techniques which offer truly state-of-the-art care for patients with certain problems that, until recently, were virtually untreatable.

In 2005, for instance, our surgeons performed what is believed to be the first simultaneous reattachment of hands done in New York State. See the video (6:23 min) about this historic surgery.

Our plastic surgeons contribute to the excellence of the Stony Brook Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Center that provides specialized multidisciplinary care for children of all ages born with cleft lip/palate and other defects affecting the head (cranium) and/or face.
