What is Cosmetic Surgery?
Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is elective and is usually not covered by health insurance.

Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.

On your first visit, please bring your driver’s license, list of medications, and insurance card if you are a reconstructive patient. Please arrive a few minutes early to complete paperwork. Let us know if you have had radiologic studies so Dr. Strinden can view them prior to your visit or request that you bring a copy. If you are a returning patient, please be sure to update your contact information and insurance information with the receptionist.
