The John C. Lincoln Center for Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, Arizona provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art, individualized care for patients with severe trauma, disfigurements or impaired functionality as a result of injuries, postoperative outcomes, significant weight loss or other medical conditions.
Inset: A broken jawbone is repaired with a metal rod, using the less intrusive endoscopic condylar procedure.
Our surgeons are skilled in the most advanced procedures available, with particular expertise in craniofacial and lower limb reconstruction, neural reattachment and breast reconstruction. A medical textbook on body recontouring was co-authored by one of our physicians.

Innovative Techniques for Plastic Surgery in Phoenix
Breast reconstruction surgery using microvascular techniques to transfer the patient's own tissue — instead of using implants alone to rebuild breasts following cancer surgery and/or radiation treatment — greatly reduces the possibility of rejection and other postsurgical complications from implant-based reconstructive procedures.
Endoscopic condylar repair reattaches the delicate broken tip of the jawbone without damaging fragile facial nerves, greatly reducing the likelihood of development of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).
Body contouring after massive weight loss, which is often seen after bariatric surgery, removes excess skin and soft-tissue. Body contouring can help to improve health and hygiene, as well as produce aesthetically pleasing results.
