The Rush Approach to Plastic Surgery

Whether your case is common or complex, Rush plastic and reconstructive surgeons work closely with you to understand your goals and make a personalized plan for repairing, rebuilding and improving.

Our surgeons are globally renowned for their expertise in restoring appearance and function to every part of the body, from head to toe. And they're not only experts in the latest surgical techniques; they invented many of them.

They offer all types of plastic and reconstructive surgeries, including facial and body cosmetic surgery, as well as reconstructive surgery of the face, breast and limbs. They also repair conditions present at birth (e.g., cleft lip and palate) and jaw anomalies that require orthodontia.

Rush Excellence in Plastic Surgery

  • State-of-the art surgeries: Rush is one of the few systems in the Chicago area where plastic surgeons perform complex microvascular surgeries that connect tiny blood vessels and repair nerves. These precise procedures result in excellent outcomes, enable you to recover more quickly and allow for the use of your own tissue.
  • Leaders in the field: Rush plastic surgeons are pioneers in plastic surgery who lead research into new treatments, including ways to regrow tissue and bone and innovative procedures that relieve facial pain.
  • System-wide expertise: Our plastic surgeons collaborate closely with providers across the Rush System, including specialists in orthopedics, cancer treatment, bariatric surgery and other specialties. For example, if you have breast cancer surgery, your breast reconstruction surgeon works closely with your cancer surgeon to ensure that you get seamless care and better results.
  • Follow-up care close to home. Our doctors see patients at multiple locations in Chicago, as well as Oak Park, Oak Brook and Aurora/Fox Valley, with hours that accommodate your busy schedule.
