Plastic surgery is about a lot more than vanity. Dr. Avila and his dedicated staff have been providing confidential, affordable cosmetic and reconstructive surgery intended to enhance physical appearances and personal wellbeing since 1998. In personal consultation, Dr. Avila will discuss recommendations, outcomes and any possible risks. Your safety is our primary concern.
Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance because it is elective.
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 function, 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.
