Welcome to the Watson Clinic Plastic Surgery page. We have designed this page to provide our patients a resource for information so they may fully participate in the decisions involved in their treatment. We are proud to offer our patients cosmetic and plastic surgery in Lakeland and Central Florida for both the face and body.
Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve an individual’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 birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. In general, surgery is 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 insurance coverages vary greatly.
There are a number of plastic surgery procedures that sometimes require special consideration by an insurance carrier. These areas usually involve operations which may be reconstructive or cosmetic, depending on each patient's situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) - a procedure normally performed to achieve cosmetic improvement - may be covered if the eyelids are drooping severely and obscuring a patient's vision.
Our plastic surgery department offers the finest plastic and cosmetic surgery services for patients in Lakeland and surrounding areas. Please see the detailed information below on a variety of procedures and services that we offer. Because we provide individualized care and attention to detail, we are able to give you even more specific information after a confidential consultation.
