Whether you are exploring cosmetic surgery procedures or looking for advanced reconstruction surgery after trauma or cancer, the UPMC Department of Plastic Surgery offers a breadth of comprehensive surgical services to help meet your needs.

Our specialized programs, across a variety of locations in western Pennsylvania, are backed by one of the largest academic plastic surgery departments in the country. For more than 70 years, through research and clinical trials, our team has pioneered cutting-edge techniques to improve our patients’ quality of life.

Our department also is one of the region’s leading centers in restorative medicine. The Center for Innovation in Restorative Medicine​ utilizes regenerative techniques based on cellular therapy and tissue engineering to help patients who face amputation or disfigurement—including women seeking breast reconstruction after mastectomies, burn survivors, and injured war veterans.
