The Washington University Facial Plastic Surgery Center specializes in both types of surgery for the face, head and neck - cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery.

Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery corrects or restores the aesthetic form and function. Its goal is to improve the patient's overall appearance and self-esteem.  As head and neck facial plastic surgery experts, Drs. Chi and Branham concentrate on surgery for the anatomy of the face and neck. It is their specialty. Included under the category of cosmetic surgery are 'just for men', eyelid surgery, facelift surgery, forehead and brow lift surgery, mini facelift surgery, neck lift, liposuction, otoplasty, and rhinoplasty or nose surgery.

Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgery of the head and neck is used to correct the physical results of disease, birth defects, a trauma injury, illness or a congenital disorder by restoring or improving a deficiency or abnormality in a physical function. Facial reconstructive surgeries include corrective surgery for facial implantsfacial trauma reconstruction, Mohs cancer surgery reconstruction, and scar revision and camouflage.
